Lawmakers voice concern over lack of quality cultural products


08:54, October 26, 2012

Chinese lawmakers have expressed concerns over the lack of quality cultural products in the country.

They highlighted their concerns while discussing a report delivered at the bi-monthly session of the Standing Committee of the National People's Congress (NPC), the country's top legislature.

At the panel discussion on Thursday morning, lawmakers debated the report delivered by the Minister of Culture, Cai Wu, on Wednesday which briefed on the progress in developing the country's cultural sector.

Fang Xin, a legislator and professor with Chinese Academy of Sciences, said although the number of cultural products has increased and "China has become the world's largest producer of television series and third in movies", quality ones were insufficient.

"Some cultural products are shoddy, over-entertaining, and promoting violence," Fang said, arguing quality ones should be able to touch the souls of people and stand the test of time.
