All ingredients seem in place for holding a 6th Tibet Work Forum, which will decide the fate of the Roof of the World and the Tibetan people for the next 5 to 10 years.
If nothing unexpected occur in China in the next few weeks, the meeting should be held soon.
Less than two months ago, I mentioned an article, which appeared in the official Chinese press, it was titled: “Guess what? 6th Tibet Work Conference may be convened this year, netizens say.”
The announcement of the holding of a Sixth Conference (or Forum) on Tibet Work by ‘netizens’ was clearly a propaganda gimmick, but the Forum is no doubt forthcoming.
The previous Forum was held in Beijing in January 2010.
Before that, five Tibet Work Conferences were organized in 1980, 1984, 1994, 2001 and 2010.[Source]
