BEIJING, Feb. 28 (Xinhua) -- Chinese Premier Li Keqiang has signed a State Council decree to promulgate the revised regulations on the protection of underwater cultural relics.
The regulations will take effect on April 1 and lay down requirements to strengthen the conservation and management of underwater cultural relics given new circumstances in recent years.
