The chapters represent the cutting-edge of scholarship, setting out the future directions of culture, creativity and innovation in China.

Extract

In January 2008, the author attended a Creative Industries High-Level Panel Meeting held by United Nations Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD) in Geneva and delivered a presentation entitled ‘Chinese Cultural and Creative Industry: Development and Policies’. The presentation for UNCTAD discussed the uneven development of Chinese cultural and creative industries noting similarities and differences in the developed eastern, the developing central and the underdeveloped western regions. In addition, the presentation suggested that developing central regions and underdeveloped western regions can develop their own cultural and creative industries based on local conditions. This chapter, which draws on the presentation at UNCTAD, provides more detail about this topic and discusses how the Chinese government is providing industry assistance for ethnic cultural industries while ensuring the protection of intangible cultural resources.
