The two sides will jointly conduct comprehensive analysis, risk monitoring, protection and utilization, as well as related academic research on ancient buildings, murals, sculptures and other cultural relics, according to the academy.

They will also work together to research and construct a database of Tibetan Buddhist cultural relics, while holding various academic seminars and cultural exhibitions.

"The cooperation aims to carry forward the fine traditional culture of the Chinese nation and better tell stories of the two heritage sites to the public," said Zhao Shengliang, head of the academy.

Meanwhile, the academy will carry out cooperation between the cultural industry and tourism, finance and technology such as 5G, promoting the protection and utilization of the cultural relics in Dunhuang.

Using its expertise and technology in preserving ancient murals, the academy has helped repair murals in other parts of China, including Xinjiang and Tibet.
