At the group meeting of Guizhou delegation to the National People's Congress (NPC) held during the fourth session of the 13th NPC on March 7, Guizhou NPC deputy Yang Changqin suggested national support for intangible cultural heritage development.

Yang is also an inheritor of the intangible cultural heritage of bamboo weaving.

She said that intangible cultural heritage should advance with the times and meet the needs of modern society. However, China's intangible cultural heritage products are lacking industrialization and the market to survive.

Most intangible cultural heritage products are hand-made and expensive. The cost of manufacturing the products should be reduced to lower prices and the market of intangible cultural heritage should be expanded.

To solve this problem, Yang suggested that inheritors should make intangible cultural heritage items useful and applicable in daily life and cooperate with design schools and university students to spur innovation.

Lan Shaomin, NPC deputy and deputy secretary of the CPC Guizhou Provincial Committee, said that intangible cultural heritage products need to be priced reasonably. Once the public accepts the intangible cultural heritage products, customer groups will pursue hand-made and high-quality products.

NPC deputies involved in ethnic culture and intangible cultural heritage will propose a detailed plan to push forward the development of intangible cultural heritage.
