China has seen an economic boom over the past 30 years since the start of its reform and opening up policy, but reform of the culture industry didn't start until the end of 2003. On Thursday morning, a report was released to present a full review of the changes that will occur when the reform is carried out.

The International Communication Office of the CPC Central Committee held a press conference, releasing the official statistics on Thursday morning in Beijing. The culture industry has seen an annual increase of 22 percent from 2004 to 2008. The news and publishing sector broke 1-trillion yuan in revenue in 2009.
