In the long history, the splendid Chinese civilization is unique. For more than 5,000 years, the ancient Chinese nation has stood erect in the east of the world.
 
From the inheritance of cultural heritage to the protection of natural heritage; From strengthening the protection and utilization of the material cultural heritage to stimulating the innovative vitality of the intangible cultural heritage ... Since the 18th National Congress of the CPC, the Party Central Committee with Comrade Xi Jinping at the core has taken a new historical position, given a series of important instructions and made overall arrangements to protect the cultural and natural heritage with great concern and promotion from the strategy of keeping cultural roots and the soul of the nation.
 
The bright light of civilization ignites the deeper and more lasting power in the hearts of hundreds of millions of Chinese and illuminates the road of national rejuvenation.
 
Looking ahead and planning the layout-in line with the attitude of being responsible for the country, the nation and future generations, general secretary Xi Jinping has pointed out the direction for the protection of China's cultural and natural heritage with a high degree of historical consciousness and cultural confidence.
 
During the Dragon Boat Festival, Taierzhuang District, Zaozhuang, Shandong Province, was full of tourists wandering along the Grand Canal.
 
In the early morning, the reflection of the sunrise and boats are full of the river. At night, the oars sound could be heard and the lights are shining, and people live on the river … It is hard for people immersed in the beautiful scenery to imagine that this artificial river, which runs through five major water systems in the north and south and eight provinces and cities, once faced many troubles such as crowding, filling and occupation, ecological pollution, etc.
 
How can the Grand Canal, which has a history of more than 2500 years and nurtures vast land and hundreds of millions of people, "live" with more dignity and luster?
 
In June 2017, General Secretary Xi Jinping gave an important instruction on the construction of the Grand Canal cultural belt: The Grand Canal was a precious heritage left to us by our ancestors and a floating culture. It should be well protected, inherited and utilized.
 
We will establish a heritage file and monitoring system, issue a series of local laws and regulations to protect the world cultural heritage of the Grand Canal, complete a special research report on the protection and utilization of cultural relics in the cultural belt of the Grand Canal, and issue the Outline of the Plan for the Heritage and Utilization of the Cultural Protection of the Grand Canal ...
 
Under the care and guidance of General Secretary Xi Jinping, the central and local governments have carried out overall planning and orderly progress. The river has connected numerous material and intangible cultural heritages along the coast, providing new energy for economic and social development.
 
Thoughts are unstoppable and feelings are deep and long-lasting.
 
In 2002, comrade Xi Jinping, then governor of Fujian province, pointed out in his preface to the book Fuzhou ancient house: "To protect ancient buildings and cultural relics is to preserve the history, the context of the city, and the intangible fine traditions of famous historical and cultural cities."
 
Don't forget the original, so that we can open up the future.
 
Since the 18th National Congress of the Communist Party of China, facing the accelerated historical process of urbanization, General Secretary Xi Jinping has pointed out profoundly that we could do a good job in today's cause only if we persisted in moving from history to the future and forged ahead from the continuation of national culture.
 
In early summer, there is a busy scene at the site of Nanyang site excavation in Nanyang Village, Liangmatai Township, Rongcheng County, Xiong'an New Area, Hebei Province. This site is the largest ancient site with the richest cultural connotation in Xiong'an New Area and is a national key cultural relic protection unit.
 
According to the request of General Secretary Xi Jinping to "persist in protecting and carrying forward the excellent traditional culture of China and continue the historical context", the Hebei Xiong'an New Srea Joint Archaeological Team has completed a comprehensive survey of cultural relics in Xiong'an New Srea and a trial excavation of 50 ancient sites and tombs within about 100 square kilometers of the initial area.
 
Since the 18th National Congress of the CPC, General Secretary Xi Jinping has adhered to the awe of historical relics, strengthened the scientific concept of "protecting cultural relics is also a political achievement", and coordinated the protection of cultural relics and economic and social development.
 
For the protection of the ancient city of Zhengding in Hebei, General Secretary Xi Jinping proposed "upholding the correct concept of ancient city protection, that is, to effectively protect its historical and cultural values".
 
Regarding the preparation of the memorial hall on the former site of the central Committee of the communist party of China in Wuhan, general secretary Xi Jinping stressed that "the old should be repaired as it was before, and the original appearance should be preserved to prevent constructive damage".
 
The ruins of the "mass graves" in Fuxin, Liaoning province were destroyed and the five stone candlesticks of the Ming tombs were stolen. General secretary Xi Jinping gave a lot of important instructions ...
 
"Cultural relics carry splendid civilization, inherit historical culture and maintain the national spirit. They are the precious heritage left to us by our ancestors and the profound nourishment for strengthening the construction of socialist spiritual civilization. The merit of protecting cultural relics lies in the present age and benefits the future. "
 
General Secretary Xi Jinping attaches great importance to the protection and inheritance of precious heritage.
 
During his inspection in Beijing, the general secretary pointed out that history and culture were the soul of the city and the city's historical and cultural heritage should be protected as well as his own life.
 
When he came to Xi 'an Museum, the first concern of the General Secretary was the protection of the Little Wild Goose Pagoda. He specifically told the ancient building protection to adhere to the principle of "repairing the old as it was".
 
Arriving at Gusheng Village, Wanqiao Town, Dali, Dali Bai Autonomous Prefecture, the general secretary pointed out that the new rural construction must "pay attention to the local sense, preserve the rural style, keep the green mountains and waters, and remember the homesickness".
 
In Yongqing Square, Xiguan Historical and Cultural Street, Liwan District, Guangzhou, the General Secretary walked into the Cantonese Opera Art Museum to encourage amateur performers to develop the Cantonese opera well.
 
...
 
We remember the vicissitudes of history, see the marks left by the years, and keep the cultural roots.
 
General Secretary Xi Jinping firmly believes that "the revival of a nation needs strong material strength as well as strong spiritual strength."
 
He led the Standing Committee of the Political Bureau of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of China to visit the site of the First Congress of the Communist Party of China in Shanghai and the Nanhu Red Boat in Jiaxing, Zhejiang Province, to review the history of the founding of the Party and the oath of joining the Party.
 
He traveled all over Xibaipo, Yan'an, Jinggangshan and other revolutionary holy places, to let us stay true to our founding mission.
 
Through history, we can close to our faith and inspire our hearts.
 
Under the guidance of Xi Jinping's thought of socialism with Chinese characteristics in the new era, the towering trees protecting cultural and natural heritage have sprouted new branches. The national spirit with patriotism as the core and the spirit of the times with reform and innovation as the core blossom fragrance.
 
In Pan'an Lake National Wetland Park in Xuzhou, Jiangsu Province, Wang Xiuying, who is over 80 years old, is busy threading a needle in a sachet studio.
 
On December 12, 2017, General Secretary Xi Jinping came to Mazhuang Village in Pan'anhu Street and entered the sachet studio in the village. Picking up a Chinese medicine sachet made by Wang Xiuying, the general secretary bought one at his own expense and said with a smile, "I want to support it too".
 
The protection of cultural and natural heritage is not only the long-term plan for the sustainable development of the country and the nation, but also the public's yearning for a better life.
 
Now, the sachet from Mazhuang Village has been so popular, becoming the village's "magic key" to get rich. Wang Xiuying said, "Although I am old, I still need to pass on the traditional culture and make some contribution to our society."
 
Following the guidance of General Secretary Xi Jinping, the protection of cultural and natural heritage in the new era is closer to the people's needs of the times and releases the tremendous energy it contains.
