Protest against government-sponsored power plant on Tibetan grazing land in Ngaba

The mining companies benefit from state financing of railways, power stations and many other infrastructure projects.

Much of China’s significant transport infrastructure developments in Tibet have been intended to facilitate the movement of military forces into the country and the removal of natural resources from it.

Companies also benefit from finance at concessional rates to corporate borrowers, tax holidays, minimal environmental standards and costs, no requirement to compensate local communities and subsidised rail freight rates to get concentrates to smelters or metal to markets.
