In 2015, the Ministries of Culture and Education launched a research and training program for inheritors of intangible cultural heritage. Up to now, nearly 48,000 inheritors have graduated from the program and increased their capabilities.
Since March 2016, supported by the Ministry of Culture, 10 traditional cultural and art work stations have been gradually set up across the country to promote traditional crafts. These include embroidery, wood sculpture and lacquer art. More than 1,000 kinds of products have so far been developed at these stations and put on the market, which has greatly promoted the innovative transformation of traditional crafts.
