China solicits public opinions for revising cultural heritage law

Xinhua,August 12, 2019 Adjust font size:

China's National Cultural Heritage Administration (NCHA) is soliciting opinions from the public for a draft revision to the law on cultural heritage protection.

The public is expected to pool their wisdom for the issues including strengthening protection of cultural heritage, promoting appropriate use, streamlining the ownership system, encouraging social participation and expanding the sharing of resources, said the NCHA on its website earlier this week.

Members of the public may submit their opinions via mail, e-mail, and NCHA's Weibo and WeChat accounts before Sept. 9, the statement said.

The current law on cultural relics protection was adopted in 1982. Its revision was listed in the legislative plan of the Standing Committee of the 13th National People's Congress.
