Warning on Poorly-Preserved Intangible Heritage
(Feng Jicai, Chairman of the China Society for the Study of Folk Literature and Art)
A warning and removal system for intangible cultural heritage inscribed in the lists of the national and local governments should be set up. Relevant government departments should establish expert groups to supervise and monitor the inscribed heritage. A warning should be issued for poorly preserved or overly exploited heritage. Those seriously damaged, changed in nature or no longer transmitted should be removed from the list.
