24-november-2011-germany-1Dharamshala, India: - The Kalon Tripa (political leader) of the Tibetan Parliament-in-exile, Dr. Lobsang Sangay, is currently on his first European tour, which includes visits to Belgium, Switzerland, Germany, Norway, Denmark, France & Great Britain.

According to Ms Rigzin Choedon Genkhang, special assistant at the Office of Tibet in Brussels, Belgium, Dr Sangay will visit the city from November 27 to 29, "on the invitation of the European Parliament's Tibet Intergroup, where he will be the keynote speaker at the Tibet conference on Genuine Autonomy."

During this visit, Dr Sangay, who will be joined by Mr Penpa Tsering, the speaker of the Tibetan Parliament, is scheduled to meet leading politicians.

He will address the Foreign Affairs Committee at an extraordinary meeting, senior research fellows of a major think tank, representatives of a key media group, and members of the Tibetan community.

On November 28, he will be received at the Brussels Press Club, where he will brief journalists on the situation in Tibet.

A Harvard scholar, Dr Sangay assumed office at the Central Tibetan Administration in August this year, following the devolution of political authority by His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama last May.

Before departing for Europe himself, Speaker Penpa Tsering attended both a conference on water management in Delhi and the Tibetan Parliament-in-exile's internal conclave. He also held a meeting with members of the All Party Indian Parliamentarians Forum for Tibet (APIPFT).

From November 23 to 25, he visited Vienna, where he met parliamentarians, foreign office officials, members of the media, and pro-Tibetan activists.


On November 26, Mr Tsering will meet members of the Tibetan community in Holland.
