Gyaincain Norbu (Tibetan: རྒྱལ་མཚན་ནོར་བུ་; born June 1932) is a Tibetan politician. He was Chairman of the Tibet Autonomous Region[1] from 1990 to 1998. He was succeeded by Legqog.

In November 1995, Gyaincain Norbu presided at a ceremony organised by the Chinese government to select its approved claimant to title of 11th Panchen Lama from a list of finalists by using the Golden Urn. The boy selected at this ceremony was also named Gyaincain Norbu, which is a fairly common Tibetan name. The boy is of no relation to Chairman Gyaincain Norbu.
