Archeologists from around the world have gathered in the ancient town of Bagan in Myanmar to discuss how to preserve that country's history.
Experts come from various countries, including China, are involved in the discussions.
As part of the session, the Chinese government has pledged one million US dollars to the conservation work in the city of Bagan itself, which authorities in Myanmar are hoping to have added to UNESCO's World Heritage list.
