“Since influx of Tibetans from Tibet have become relatively less, the centre had to adjust to a change accordingly. Having said that, it doesn’t signify that the situation inside Tibet has improved as the current situation inside Tibet still continue to be dire and critical” said the President while acknowledging the decline number of Tibetans arriving into exile from Tibet.

Speaker Ven. Khenpo Sonam Tenphel highlighted the need and significance of training centre as one that moulds and builds trainees to become capable leaders of tomorrow and therefore commended the initiative taken.
