On July 23rd, Chinese President Hu Jintao pointed out that reforming the country's cultural system was an important decision made by the Party's central committee. He said the reforms were closely related to China's economic and social development.
The changes have been far reaching, including the reform of 30 of the country's state-owned bookstores. State-owned film studios are also increasingly reforming their management systems. The reforms are allowing for more material to be produced outside of state-owned television and radio broadcasters, for distribution. And legal reforms regarding cultural products have made substantial progress.
