The author would like to gratefully acknowledge the generous invitation by Lhasa Men–Tsee–Khang to attend this event, and the outstanding treatment he received as a guest there. In particular, he wishes to thank Dr. Tenzin Lhundup for his untiring and kind assistance during his stay in Lhasa. The contents of the Chinese speeches reported here are derived from his notes of the official simultaneous translations provided by the organizers. Despite his best efforts, inaccuracies or misunderstandings are therefore possible, and should in no way be attributed to the speakers themselves. While fully funded by Lhasa Men–Tsee–Khang, his attendance at this conference was part of his ongoing European Research Council Starting Grant project RATIMED .
