The first annual report from the U.S. Congressional-Executive Commission on China, released this morning on Capitol Hill, has a section on Tibet accompanied by several recommendations for the Congress and Administration on Tibet policy.

These recommendations include:

  • Increasing Congressional funding for NGOs for development programs in Tibet.
  • Continuing to “urge Chinese leaders to engage in substantive dialogue with the Dalai Lama or his representatives.”
  • Continuing to “urge that China end restrictions on Gedun Choekyi Nyima…” and “request that representatives of international observer organizations visit the boy and his family.”
