    After having three key topics: 1) challenges in large-scale heritage conservation: balancing heritage authenticity, daily life, and economic growth; 2) From top-down to bottom-up: transforming decision-making process; and 3) Interact with people: understanding stakeholders’ responsibilities and obligations, presented by Professor Jiang Hong of SAchool of Architecture, Southeast University, I think that applying law and regulations in cultural heritage is the most important to secure the sustainable development at the cultural heritage sites to preserve the core values to generation to generation and in the same time to share equally benefits to all concerned shareholders. From my point of view, in the context of Cambodia, nowadays, we have to work harder and harder to revise existing laws and regulations and produce it more to meet the dynamic challenges in cultural heritage conservation with the integrating ways. Furthermore, to be more effective and efficient, it is not to apply only the classic method of the decision-making process with the top-down approach, must apply the bottom-up approach too. All of these are not have only happened in China or In Cambodia, but all over the world. The whole world, therefore, must take specific steps to deal with this.

    In Cambodia, the Law on the protection of cultural heritage was adopted in 1996 by the National Assembly. The purpose of this law is to protect national cultural heritage and cultural property in general against illegal destruction, modification, alteration, excavation, alienation, exportation, or importation. The main two ministries to implement this policy are the Ministry of Culture and Fine Arts and the Ministry of Land Use Planning, Urbanization, and Constructions. However, In the Angkor/Siem Reap region, the Authority for Protection and Management of Angkor and the region of Siem Reap, called APSARA, is responsible for the protection and preservation, and enhancement of the national cultural heritage. In this policy, it clearly stated many measures to protect cultural heritage and cultural properties. However, it doesn’t work well. Still now, we still not find any right answer to this question. From my point of view, it probably was because the lack of cooperation between the responsible authorities and law enforcement was weak.

    In Cambodia, there are 3 cultural sites are listed on the World Heritage List, the Archeological Park of Angkor; Prasat Preah Vihear Temple, and Prasat sambo Prey Kuk.
    As presented by Mr. Professor Lyu Zhou, there are at least 3 values, namely historical, artistic, and scientific values. From my point of view, it here should be more than those values. Therefore, we must find those values accordingly later on.

    Based on natural law, nothing is static and fixed., I strongly think that all heritage values are ready to change from time to time along with the change of people’s mindset and the physical environment.

    I would like to express my gratitude to Ms. Ahuja and all teams of Hong Kong University, the Thankcity Institute, and the UNESCO Bangkok Office for deciding to have a forum instead of a quiz as we have done before. However, from my personal point of view, I think it would be better if both could be combined together because each tool has own its effectiveness. The case study of Hazrat Nizamuddin Urban Renewal Initiatives has reflected the effective tools and good practices for sustaining heritage resources by mobilizing heritage for sustainable development. Of course, no one could reject or look over the positive impacts that occurred from the heritage management at this world Heritage Sites. However, in reality, each site has its own characteristics so the heritage site is managed effectively and may vary from place to place. In any case, there are many specific lessons learn from this World Heritage site, Hazrat Nizamuddin and the heritage professionals and practitioners are able to replicate in their own project site. Also, these lessons could be replicated in the case of Vancouver’s Chinatown as well.

    The previous participants already mentioned many specific aspects of lessons learn to apply in that VCT. For me, I personally think that heritage tourism (Sair-E-Nizamuddin, Insha-E-Nizamuddin, and Zaika-E-Nizamuddin projects) is one of the outstanding examples from Hazrat to apply in VCT. The VCT community must stand up together to promote more Chinese cultural events and activities to attract not only Canadian Chinese tourist, but also Canadian tourist and other ethnicities to this area. Along with it, it must entice and persuade the group of young Chinese by convincing them to participate in the projects that could retain and revitalize their Chinese traditions and culture that could meet their aspiration in the both short and long terms. Thank you.
