China has 35,000 sites and monuments, as well as one million mobile cultural relics, related to the revolutionary period.
China will allocate more funds to protect the cultural heritage of the revolutionary era in the country's poorest regions, Gu Yucai, deputy director of the country's Cultural Heritage Department, said Tuesday at a press conference held by the State Council's Communication Department.
According to Gu, China boasts 35,000 sites and monuments, as well as one million mobile cultural relics, related to the revolutionary period. There are over 800 Revolutionary History museums, Gu added.
China unveiled the first list of 15 areas for the protection and use of cultural relics from the revolutionary period, according to a note released by the State Council and by various departments of the Communist Party's Central Committee. Those areas, which comprise 645 districts and 110 cities in the 20 provincial regions, include famous historical sites such as the Jinggang Mountains, known as the "cradle of the Chinese Revolution," located in eastern China's Jiangxi Province. The project was launched in 2018 after the approval of a directive aimed at strengthening the Revolution's cultural heritage
