  Shandong has invested a total of nearly one billion yuan in national, provincial and local supporting facilities to protect cultural heritage in recent years, benefiting more than five million people.

  Recently, the Grand Canal was successfully inscribed on the list of World Heritage, becoming the 46th World Heritage project in China. So far, Shandong province has 10 state historical and cultural cities, namely Jinan, Qingdao, Liaocheng, Zibo, Yantai, Tai'an, Qufu, Zoucheng, Penglai and Qingzhou, 16 national traditional villages, 196 key national cultural relic protection units and 153 state intangible heritage projects.

  A strategic plan of "Seven Zones Two Belts" cultural heritage protection area, breaking the existing administrative division, is proposed by Shandong province. The protection area, divided based on the cultural distribution characteristics of the province, contains the seven zones of Qufu, Ziwei, Mountain Tai, the Yellow River Delta, the Peninsula, Yimeng and Western Shandong area, as well as the two belts of the Grand Canal belt and the Qi Great Wall belt. In combination with urban construction planning, Qufu area cultural heritage protection plan and Grand Canal Historical and Cultural Corridor construction plan are formulated to protect the 88 key cultural relics in Shandong.

  Shandong Provincial Protection Regulations on Intangible Cultural Heritage has entered the legislative procedure, according to Xu Xianghong, vice director of the publicity department of provincial Party committee and head of provincial department of culture, which stipulates that people's government above the county level should protect the representative projects of the intangible cultural heritage in the urban and rural planning and construction.
