In recent years, based on the local conditions, the People's Government of Zhejiang Province has spared no effort in ICH safeguarding work.

According to Chen Yao, director general of Zhejiang Provincial Department of Culture, Zhejiang boasts 2017 national-level cultural heritages in the National Intangible Cultural Heritage List, ranking 1st across the nation.

"Zhejiang has developed its own way to safeguard ICH and we would like to promote the mode to wider access, increase the public's awareness on ICH and integrate ICH into our daily lifestyles," Chen added.
