The Tibetan community based in Taiwan gathered for a meeting on Sunday
to discuss latest developments related to the issue of Tibet and
resolved to strengthen efforts to outreach to Chinese community to
raise their awareness on the problems in Tibet.  The meeting
was convened by Taiwan Tibetan Welfare Association at the Prayer Hall
of Tibet Religious Foundation of His Holiness the Dalai Lama. The
members of Tibetan Association, Regional Tibetan Youth Congress,
Regional Tibetan Women’s Association and other Tibetan active members
attended the meeting.  “One of the important issues discussed
in the meeting was that Taiwan is the right place to strengthen Tibetan
people’s efforts to reach out to Chinese people and to make aware the
ordinary Chinese brothers and sisters about the real situation in
Tibet,” His Holiness the Dalai Lama’s Representative to Taiwan, who
attended the meeting, told TibetNet website.  Representative
Dawa Tsering briefed the Tibetan community on issues regarding the
recent amendment made to the charter on the devolution of His Holiness
the Dalai Lama’s formal authority to the democratically elected Tibetan
leadership. He also made clarifications and replied to questions on the
charter amendment, the Middle Way Approach, about the concept of
democracy and other Tibet-related issues.  As thousands of
tourists, including those from mainland China, visits Taiwan on a daily
basis, the meeting unanimously agreed to organise every Sunday Tibet
awareness events at different major tourist spots in Taipei city.  Mr
Dachompa, president of Taiwanese-Tibetan Association and Mr Tashi
Tsering, vice-president of Chinese-Tibetan Association of Taiwan,
briefed the gathering on major important issues that were discussed
during the 2nd Tibetan General Body Meeting held in Dharamsala. Mr
Dachompa attended the general meeting in Dharamsala as a delegate of
the Tibetans in Taiwan, while Mr Tashi Tsering participated as a
volunteer.   –Report filed by, Kalsang Lhundup, OOT, Taiwan
