"The cultural relics in Tibet not only reflect the history and social development of the region but also its emotional connection with the rest of the country," says Liu.

"The protection and utilization of cultural relics can be improved through conservation projects. And more job opportunities in the cultural and tourism sectors can be created," he adds.

Giving details of future plans, Liu says more conservation projects-including the restoration of 77 historical sites and the upgrading or construction of nine public museums-besides archaeological work will be taken up within the next five years.
