Duong Bich Hanh, program specialist for culture, UNESCO Multi-sectoral Regional Office for East Asia, says that UNESCO views all intangible cultural heritage as having equal value.

They are accumulated by local communities and are very important elements, says Duong.

She hopes that more communities will join and upgrade world heritage capacity building.

"This way, we can incorporate more comprehensive and diverse themes into our training programs," Duong says, adding that such themes can include how to nominate intangible cultural heritage, how to protect it amid conflicts, and how to explore relationship between living heritage and digital technology.

Wang Chenyang considers people-oriented development content to be at the core of the UNESCO convention.

"All protective measures should revolve around the inheritors, not just their status quo but long-term development," he says.

Speaking about future plans, he says China will continue to carry on Chinese traditional culture at a new horizon, show the cultural essence of Chinese civilization through intangible cultural heritage, promote cultural prosperity, and create a modern Chinese civilization.
