On June 15, 2014, the 38th Session of World Heritage Committee opened in Doha, Qatar and will continue through June, 25. During the session, the committee considers the inscription of 36 sites on UNESCO’s World Heritage List, and the application of the Grand Canal being a world heritage site was approved on June 22, 2014. It has made China’s 46th World Heritage Site and 32th World Cultural Heritage Site.


Participants at the meeting spoke highly of the Grand Canal, describing it as “a valuable fruit of the Chinese people's diligence and wisdom”, and adding that” its inclusion has enriched the content of the World Heritage”.

The 1,794-kilometer Grand Canal, running from Beijing City in the north to Hangzhou City in the south, is the longest artificial waterway in the world. Serving as the main artery between southern and northern China, it has played an essential role in the economic and cultural communication of southern and northern China, and it continues today as a major means of internal communication of China.
