Here in China, culture is now seen as an essential component of our global competitiveness. The government hopes to see the cultural sector play a more critical role in China’s socio-economic development.

But how? What must be done before our shows, films and exhibitions can tour the capitals of the world? And is the relationship between culture and the market really in the best interest of artists and audiences alike?

CCTV News Correspondent and Host, Tian Wei, speaks to CPPCC Member, Maestro Yu Long. He is also the Artistic Director and Conductor of the China Philharmonic Orchestra and he began by sharing his experience leading the orchestra at the Dvorák Festival in the Czech Republic.
