On Saturday, the State Administration of Cultural Heritage announced that it will be revising its plans to properly safeguard the country's cultural relics and heritage.
In his statement during the 13th National Committee of the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference, Director Liu Yuzhu called for a more complete mechanism that would permit the country to protect its national treasures properly.
He said, "The safety issue is the foundation of work related to cultural relics. We need more detailed and tailored plans."
He also said that local governments and institutions involved in cultural relics and sites must be jointly responsible for the protection of these relics in case of fire, theft and other threats.
Currently, the Chinese government has teamed up with all departments to fight against any threats to cultural heritages and relics.
Despite this; however, Liu shared that the government has recently discovered through a nationwide investigation that there are still problems in maintaining the protection of cultural heritages throughout the country due to several issues, like lack of expertise and lack of personnel to see these sites.
