The province's 14 items have been included in the national revitalization list of Chinese traditional crafts. Three Shandong-based enterprises have been recognized as national intangible cultural heritage demonstration bases by the Ministry of Culture while 68 others have been named provincial ones.

Shandong has set up traditional craft workstations in four enterprises and traditional craft key laboratories in two universities.

More than 1.1 million enterprises and individual businesses are engaged in traditional crafts, with annual total revenue topping 126.7 billion yuan ($20 billion), which contributes 13.5 billion yuan to taxation and creates three million jobs.

In addition, Shandong has one national cultural ecological protection experimental area and nine provincial ones.
