China's General Administration of Press and Publication (GAPP) inaugurated the Beijing National Music Industry Base on Dec. 26, the third one of its kind in China after those in Shanghai and Guangdong.

The Beijing National Music Industry Base was approved by the GAPP in May this year, and is made up of the 1919 Music and Culture Industry Base, Beijing Music Creative Industry Park, China Record Corporation's music center, Tianqiao Performing Arts Park, China Music Valley, Xishan Cultural Creativity Avenue, and a digital music demonstration park.

The base will develop classic music and music with Chinese characteristics that cater for the demand of the international market, and forge a complete industrial chain. It aims to build a national music composition and production center, an international musical performance and consumption center, a national digital music production and dissemination center, a national music industry service center, as well as a national music copyright protection and trading center.

Liu Binjie, head of the GAPP, said the output value of China's digital music sector reached 30 billion yuan in 2010. Meanwhile, the number of online music users in the country reached 360 million, and the number of mobile music users reached 600 million.

The GAPP approved the establishment of the Shanghai National Music Industry Base in November 2009, and the Guangdong National Music Industry Base in May 2010.
