10:15, March 05, 2012

BEIJING, March 5 (Xinhua) -- China will further promote the reform and development in its cultural system to provide a large quantity of high-quality cultural products to meet people's demand, according to a government work report to be delivered by Premier Wen Jiabao on Monday.

The government will vigorously promote nonprofit cultural services and strengthen cultural infrastructure in communities, particularly in rural areas and the central and western regions, says the report distributed to the media ahead of the opening of the Fifth Session of the 11th National People's Congress (NPC), the country's top legislature.

China will deepen the reform of the cultural system and continue to transform for-profit cultural institutions into enterprises, says the report, adding that cultural industry will be turned into a pillar of the economy.

"We will promote the flourishing of philosophy and the social sciences, and actively develop the press, publishing, radio, film, television, literature, art, and archives," says the report.

The government will intensively promote development of the system of core socialist values, and educate children and young people about values and strive to create a social atmosphere that promotes morality, integrity, dedication, and harmony, according to the report.

The report also says the government will better protect its cultural heritage and foster the flourishing of ethnic minority cultures, and intensify cultural and people-to-people exchanges with other countries in a bid to learn from each other's strengths.
