China to further reform public cultural institutions


20:29, November 25, 2011

BEIJING, Nov. 25 (Xinhua) -- The Chinese government pledged to further reform state-run cultural institutions, including art troupes and media, at a meeting here Friday.

State-run political newspapers, magazines and publishing houses as well as state-level art troupes are encouraged to borrow ideas from corporate management, said a statement issued after the meeting of a high-level office on cultural sector reform attended by Liu Yunshan, head of the Publicity Department of the Communist Party of China (CPC) Central Committee, and State Councilor Liu Yandong.

Moreover, other public art troupes, non-political newspapers, magazines and publishing houses as well as news websites will be transformed from public institutions to corporate institutions, the statement said.

Newspapers, magazines, radio and TV stations operated by the CPC as well as public museums and libraries are urged to improve their management, the statement said.

The country will allocate more resources to public cultural services, especially those in rural areas, the statement said.

The meeting was held to implement a key guideline on deepening the reform of the cultural system and promoting the development of the culture industry adopted at the sixth plenary session of the 17th CPC Central Committee last month.
