Progress on Preservation of the Ministry of Commerce Buildings

Last month, we reported that fifteen members of the Chinese People’s Political Consultative Committee (CPPCC), headed by Mr. Su Shishu, had submitted a resolution about saving the Ministry of Commerce Buildings. This month, the State Administration of Cultural Heritage (SACH) has responded with a written reply, to all parties involved, including the Ministry of Commerce and the Beijing Municipal Government, expressing its support for such a resolution. In the letter, SACH has also suggested that the Beijing Municipal Government should declare these two buildings as “officially protected cultural heritage sites” as soon as possible, and a “Chinese Traditional Commerce Museum” be established with the cooperation of Ministry of Commerce. Now we are patiently waiting for a reply from the Beijing Municipal Government as well as the Ministry of Commerce. We hope to hear a positive reply from them very soon.
