No reconstruction/rebuilding of the Old Summer Palace (Yuanming Yuan) anytime soon

I was not aware that there was a proposal from the National People’s Congress (essentially China’s Parliament) to rebuild the Old Summer Palace, but I learned today that the suggestion has been rejected by the National Cultural Heritage Administration.

You can read more about it in this article in the Global Times.

(Please note that the Global Times is one of the official English language newspapers from the Chinese Communist Party/ People’s Daily.)
