China appropriates 420 million yuan to protect the "Silk Road"

China will invest 420 million yuan as special funds to protect the 21 historical cultural sites of the "Silk Road" in Xinjiang during the national 11th five-year plan.

During the last three years, Xinjiang had spent more than 80 million yuan protecting relics, building facilities, archeology and investigation, exploration and exhumation to 19 historical cultural sites, including Jiaohe ancient city, Gaochang ancient city and ancient Loulan site and others.

This time's plan is to protect those historical cultural sites which are generally distributing in east and north of Tarim Basin, Turfan Basin, Hetian, Kashi and so on.
