A senior official of China's Tibet Autonomous Region on Tuesday said Tibetan people are confident to live a happier life under the leadership of the Communist Party of China (CPC).
Serfs' Emancipation Day was formally established on March 28 by the regional legislature in 1009 to mark the start of Tibetan democracy, which ended the feudal serf system in 1959, freeing 1 million serfs, or 90 percent of the region's population at that time.
