A senior official of the Communist Party of China (CPC) in charge of culture and publicity has called for innovations in reforming China's culture sector and for greater efforts in promoting the development of related industries.
Liu Yunshan, head of the Publicity Department of the CPC Central Committee, made the remarks Friday while addressing a meeting of local publicity officials, according to a statement given to Xinhua on Saturday.
Authorities should work for creating a "cultural atmosphere that improves scientific development and promotes social harmony," the official said.
He added that efforts should be made to improve people's understanding of the importance and necessity of transforming China's economic growth mode and of the CPC Central Committee's Proposal for Formulating the 12th Five-Year Program for China's Economic and Social Development (2011-2015).
The Proposal was adopted last month at the Fifth Plenum of the 17th CPC Central Committee.
Further, Liu urged authorities to map out a blueprint for the reform and development of China's culture sector, in accordance with that proposal.
