Historical and cultural heritage of a country is a nation formed long-term material and spiritual masterpiece, not destroyed Health, a non reminders. Protect the historical and cultural heritage, so that they continue to this modern luminescence, is a symbol of modern civilization. The protection of historical and cultural heritage with the modernization drive seems to be a contradiction, but the practice can prove both coexistence and common prosperity, and promote each other. -- Two hundred years ago, Europeans in the early industrial revolution have wantonly destroyed ancient architecture of the castle, but they soon awaken from the legal system and public awareness proceed in strict protection. Today, groups of Chinese people to France, Britain, Italy and other countries, that is ancient and modern, old and new harmony between Light, the city of genuine, almost see expanding road demolitions "transformation of the old city," however, there still Liurenruzhi, beautiful environment, and economic development. However, we have inspected many people remember back only after high-rise buildings, the protection of historical forget. China is one of the world's four major ancient civilizations, these achievements in heritage preservation is significant, but heritage "constructive destruction" is also alarming. China now has 21 World Heritage, Zhejiang or blank. In fact, Heritage is a big province of Zhejiang, Hangzhou, Shaoxing, Dinghai, the Tangxi, such as the ancient city, is the original and Pingyao, Lijiang comparable, or even more advantages. They survived natural disasters, political movements, but fell on the modernization of errors, really, I am sorry our ancestors, I am sorry the future generations, and indeed regrettable. Rescue historical and cultural heritage is of no delay time! Recent Zhejiang People's Congress Standing Committee promulgated the "historical and cultural city in Zhejiang Province Protection Ordinance," and from the legal protection to build another one of the "barriers." As long as we ensure that there are effective laws must be strictly enforced, and historical and cultural heritage will be well protected.
Why destroy the cultural heritage of the history despite repeated prohibition? One of the important reasons is that they did not deal with how to treat the "political achievements". Objectively speaking, "parent officials" feel the pressure of always want to improve living conditions of the masses and the face of the city. This, of course, is a good thing. We not only did not oppose, but also to do its utmost to support, the problem is how to correctly understand and grasp the "political achievements." I think that Metro is building performance, the protection of the ancient city, and retaining heritage is the Chinese nation's outstanding performance, which is not easy to do more, we need visionary. New York, the history of Hong Kong is very short, in the island, built on the beach of a modern international metropolis in London, Paris, Rome has a long history, and carefully protected the ancient city, the same can become famous international metropolis. Zhouzhuang, such as Jiangnan six Xitang Town, famous for today, become a tourist hot spot, in fact better conditions Zhejiang original town there are many, but they were "old" and "backward" the demolition of an excuse January 1 lost. Although these town recognizable, but no character and reputation, no visitors and attractive. In the process of urbanization must pay attention to the protection of historical, insisted characteristics, a city of 100, 1000 Street is a modern one bogey. Hangzhou is a city of 2,200 years of history, layer upon layer of historical accumulation should not be thrown away with the dregs and the essence, the district should not be used in the ancient city of Shenzhen and Shanghai's Pudong and other burgeoning urban approach. Qiu Baoxing, Comrade Hangzhou soon after taking office, and other city leaders at a letter written to protect emergency Hefang Street and the surrounding area, city-built area, which will be declared World Heritage Westlake put on the agenda, invite domestic and foreign experts offered advice and suggestions, This suited to the trend of the times, in line with the people, I think this is a great performance.
Opening to the outside world that we are aware of the importance of the protection of historical and cultural heritage and arduous, but many people in our concepts, behavioural or ignorance remains in a natural state in the meet. The protection of historical and cultural cities and declared World Heritage West Lake, Hangzhou is the further opening to the outside world in the 21st century, into an international tourist city landscape key steps. Therefore, from now on, the work should be on the World Heritage standards of the world community. Down, step-by-step efforts, no difficulty can become small, small hope will further increase until successful. The protection of historical and cultural heritage in the contemporary benefits, and the credit centuries.
