Long said Tangka art has been inherited for thousands of years by Tibetans. As the quintessence of Tibetan Buddhism arts, Regong Tangka, which is on exhibition, has been enlisted in the Masterpieces of the Intangible Heritage of Humanity by the UNESCO in 2009. It is the common wealth of all human beings.

Eric said the cooperation between China and the UNESCO has been closer and closer and he expects more exchanges and cooperation with the CICCC.
