A ruined section of the Great Wall built in Ming Dynasty (1368-1644) in north China’s Qinhuangdao, Hebei Province. China yesterday released a plan to set up a long-term mechanism for the conservation and utilization of the Great Wall.

A comprehensive conservation plan has been released to establish a long-term mechanism for the conservation and utilization of the Great Wall, a senior official of the State Administration of Cultural Heritage announced Thursday.

The plan was jointly publicized by the Ministry of Culture and Tourism and the administration on Tuesday.

The government's role in protecting the Great Wall should be strengthened, said Liu Yuzhu, head of the administration, at a State Council Information Office press conference.

"Individuals and relevant social organizations are encouraged to provide not-for-profit service for the Great Wall," Liu said.

Liu said sections of the Great Wall built during the Qin (221 BC to 206 BC), Han (202 BC to 220 AD) and Ming (1368 to 1644) dynasties were the key areas to be conserved.

The Great Wall consists of many interconnected walls built between the seventh century BC and the Ming Dynasty. It was listed as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1987.
