Northwest China's Gansu province will initiate a conservation plan for the Great Wall, according to the Gansu Provincial Administration of Cultural Heritage.
"The conservation plan has been worked out and preparations for a national park management system to protect the Great Wall sections in Gansu are underway," Ma Yuping, director of the administration, said recently.
The Gansu section of the Great Wall measures 3,654 kilometers, ranking second in the country by length, with remains of the Ming Dynasty (1368-1644) Great Wall ranking first in the country.
