An academic forum themed with “creative city and culture heritage” was jointly held by International Council on Monuments and Sites (ICOMOS), Wuhan municipal government and Wuhan University on Nov.1, 2015.

Experts from fields of engineering, culture, etc. put their eyes on the application of China-Russia Ancient Tea Route as world heritage.

As known, the China-Russia Ancient Tea Route which stretches 13,000 km for 300 years was another important international trade channel following the Silk Road. And Hankou in Wuhan was nicknamed as Oriental Tea Port one century ago due to its role as an international tea trade center.

Wuhan will take the lead in application work, and joint efforts will be made to make the 13,000 km China-Russia Ancient Tea Route enter China’s World Heritage tentative list in 2017.
