Each of the nations with the most World Heritage Sites ([[Italy]]'s [[Longobards]], [[Spain]]'s [[Serra de Tramuntana]], and [[China]]'s [[Hangzhou]] West Lake area) also had sites added however, at the meeting there was talk about making it more difficult for such nations to get new heritage sites, as there are still many nations with very few or zero sites that they believe should be given greater priority.
