Guangzhou Mayor Chen Jianhua convened a municipal government executive conference on December 16.

At the conference, officials deliberated and in principle adopted the draft of the Scheme on the Application for World Cultural Heritage Status for Guangzhou's Maritime Silk Road, which had been prepared by the city's Culture, Radio, Television, Press and Publication Administration.

Six heritage sites on Guangzhou's Maritime Silk Road, including the ruins of the Nanyue King Palace, the Nanyue King Mausoleum, the Guangxiao Temple, the Huaisheng Temple, and the Islamic Sage Tombs, are already on China's list of candidate world cultural heritage sites.

Guangzhou officials have also established an expert committee for the application and recruited experts and scholars in related fields to supervise the application work. Guangzhou is expected to join hands with other cities to file for world cultural heritage status for the Maritime Silk Road in 2015.
