1. Protection plan released for Beijing's Central Axis

The protection management plan for Beijing's Central Axis from 2022 to 2035 was released in January of 2023, marking a new stage in its conservation, sustainable development and application as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

The plan is said to be one of the necessary steps toward bidding for UNESCO World Heritage status, and its release and implementation will play an important role in the protection and management of the capital's central axis.

Alongside regulations on the protection of the Central Axis carried out earlier, the plan is in line with the requirements of World Heritage conservation and provides a directional strategy and basis for conservation management.

The 21 member countries of the World Heritage Committee will decide on whether Beijing's Central Axis can be added to the World Heritage List at the committee's 46th annual conference in 2024. If the application succeeds, it will reinforce Beijing's top position among cities worldwide by number of World Heritage Sites.
