Chinese Experts to help in reconstruction of Notre-Dame Cathedral

Intro

Months after the fire incident at France’s Notre-Dame cathedral, Chinese experts will participate in the restoration , state media reported on Wednesday, following a meeting between the two countries’ heads of state in Beijing.

The cathedral, which was torn down by fire in April 2019, was the most visited historic monument in Europe.

“China has a great deal of experience in renovating ancient buildings affected by fire, especially ones made of wood,” said Chai Xiaoming, director of the Chinese Academy of Cultural Heritage, in an interview with state-run China Daily.
