China To Soon Start Building Major Dam On Brahmaputra In Tibet

China is about to build a major hydropower project on Brahmaputra river in Tibet and a proposal for this has been clearly put forward in the 14th Five-Year Plan to be implemented from next year, the official media on Sunday quoted the head of a Chinese company tasked to build the dam as saying.

Yan Zhiyong, chairman of the Power Construction Corp of China, said “China will implement hydropower exploitation in the downstream of the Yarlung Zangbo River (the Tibetan name for Brahmaputra) and the project could serve to maintain water resources and domestic security.”

Speaking at a conference on Thursday, Yan said the project was clearly put forward in the proposals for formulating the country’s 14th Five-Year Plan (2021-25) and its long-term goals through 2035 made by the Central Committee of the ruling Communist Party of China (CPC).

He said: “There is no parallel in history… it will be a historic opportunity for the Chinese hydropower industry.”

Yan told the conference organized to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the founding of the China Society for Hydropower Engineering.
