User menu

This year’s sessions of China’s Government Work Report were held in early March and included the National People’s Congress of the People’s Republic of China (NPC) and members of the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference (CPPCC).

The preservation and accessibility of cultural heritage, both tangible and intangible, was a hot topic at this year’s meetings. Issues highlighted in these discussions include the need to put in place proper laws and systems for the protection and care of historic buildings, the need for more high-level conservation training opportunities, a call to strengthen and promote editorial and periodical committees related to archaeological and cultural relics, and ideas for preserving intangible cultural heritage while enriching rural populations (including incorporating related lessons within the primary education system).
