The Manla Water Control Project in Tibet Autonomous Region was put into operation recently, marking completion of all the 62 key projects built in Tibet with the help of other provinces and municipalities throughout the country.

The Manla Water Control Project is the most expensive of the 62 projects, costing 1.1 billion yuan. It has a water storage capacity of 155 million cubic meters and is capable of irrigating 16,600 ha of farmland.

Construction of the 62 projects was initiated by the central government in 1994 with a total investment of 4.8 billion yuan. The work covered a wide range of fields including agriculture, transport, energy and telecommunications.

These projects have helped modernize the lifestyle of Tibetan people and have laid a solid foundation for Tibet's economic growth.
