China has set up a nationwide intangible cultural heritage protection network comprising 2,467 institutions and 17,308 personnel as of the end of 2018, according to a government report.

In 2018, a total of 1,082 individuals were newly recognized as artists with the responsibility of carrying forward the country's intangible cultural heritage, figures from the report show.

The figure brought the total number of national-level inheritors of intangible cultural heritage in China to 3,068.
