Following the donation to the World Heritage Fund of 885,000 French francs (approximately $146,000) made by the International Committee for the Safeguarding of Venice and the Great Wall of China in November 1988, the Chinese authorities communicated to the Secretariat a plan for the restructuring of Mutianyu pass.
