In recent years, various problems have surfaced in China on the preservation and protection of cultural heritage. During this year's Two Sessions, members of the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference voiced their opinions on how to address the issue. Let's hear some of their thoughts.

The preservation of Mogao Grottoes has always been a formidable task for Gansu Province. At first the work involved simply rescuing the damaged parts. But it later developed into an all-round mission aimed in part at preventing further and permanent damage to the heritage site.

Fan Jinshi, CPPCC member, Dunhuang Research Institute, said, "The research team consists of about 1-hundred individuals with different backgrounds. There are chemists, physicists, engineers and geologists, so that we can have an overall monitoring on every aspects of the caves."

Promoting Chinese culture is also a focus. Wu Weishan is a scholar from the Chinese National Academy of Fine Arts who believes translated literary works can be a very effective way to connect China and rest of the world.

Wu weishan, CPPCC member, Chinese National Academy of Arts, said, "We can select the best works across all time and bring out our best translators, so that we can present the best of our literature to the world."

Other proposals included those from cultural services. In 2011, public galleries, museums and libraries cancelled entrance fees for all visitors. And Fan Di'an, Director of the National Art Museum of China, proposed that in order to optimize the influence of free cultural services, public institutes should also expand their collections for art lovers and readers.
