China has appointed a new governor of Tibet, Reuters reported citing Xinhua state news agency.

58-year-old Qi Zhala, a veteran of the Communist Party of China, was previously vice secretary of the regional branch of the Communist Party.


Management of Himalayan region remains a concern for China, which has struggled with decades of often violent unrest in protest at Chinese rule.

Beijing occupied Tibet after the communist revolution in 1949, insisting that Tibet has for centuries been a part of Chinese territory.

In March 2008, the outrage over political restrictions and economic exploitation resulted in riots in traditionally Tibetan areas, during which Tibetans smashed shops and public institutions belonging to the Chinese.
