A senior official of the Communist Party of China (CPC) in charge of culture and publicity has pledged to deepen the nation's reform of its cultural sector over the next five years.

More state-owned cultural institutions will be converted into enterprises as the nation builds a competition-based market for cultural products and services, Liu Yunshan, a Secretariat member of the CPC Central Committee and head of the Publicity Department of the CPC Central Committee, said Monday.

Liu was speaking at a workshop on a blueprint for the country's cultural reforms and development for the "12th Five-Year Plan" (2011-2015), which was held in Luoyang in central China's Henan Province.

In his speech, the official called for the mapping out of the goals and tasks of the country's cultural development in accordance with the requirements of the Scientific Outlook on Development.

"Cultural restructuring is fundamental for the emancipation of cultural productivity and the realization of cultural prosperity and development," he said.

Other speakers at the meeting included Party officials responsible for local publicity work in the provinces of Henan, Hebei, Zhejiang, Jiangxi, Shandong, Guangdong, Yunnan, Shaanxi and Fujian, as well as the autonomous regions of Guangxi and Inner Mongolia.
