    LHASA, Jan. 31 (Xinhuanet) -- The per capita gross domestic product (GDP) topped 1,000 U.S. dollars in southwest China's Tibet Autonomous Region last year, at least 10 percent up over the 2004 figure, said a report released by the regional legislature.

    Tibet's GDP topped 25 billion yuan (3.1 billion U.S. dollars) in 2005, more than double the year 2000 figure of 11.78 billion yuan (1.47 billion U.S. dollars), said the report on Tibet's social and economic development endorsed by the regional People's Congress at its annual session.

    It said Tibet's annual GDP growth averaged 12 percent in the past five years.

    While traditional agricultural and animal husbandry industries continue to play a leading role in the local economic development,the tertiary sector has for the first time surpassed the primary industry to contribute more than 50 percent to the local GDP growth, the report said.

    It said Tibet will target a 12 percent annual GDP growth in the coming five years. Enditem
