"Actively promote the application for the Beijing Central Axis and the Spring Festival, and promote the inclusion of’ Pu ‘er Jingmai Mountain Ancient Tea Forest Cultural Landscape’ in the World Heritage List, and the number of world heritage sites in China has increased to 57. Lu Yingchuan, Vice Minister of Culture and Tourism, introduced the situation of building a strong cultural country and promoting the high-quality development of culture and tourism at a series of news conferences on the theme of "Opening by Authorities" held by the State Council.

The press conference introduced that since the beginning of this year, China’s tourism industry has accelerated its recovery. In the first three quarters, domestic tourism reached 3.67 billion person-times, and tourism revenue reached 3.7 trillion yuan, up 75% and 114% respectively. In order to further release the potential of tourism consumption and promote the high-quality development of tourism, the Ministry of Culture and Tourism, on the one hand, optimizes the policy environment, combines the new situation of tourism development, and exerts efforts from both supply and demand to boost tourism investment confidence and consumption confidence. On the other hand, we should cultivate new consumption formats and modes, innovate and upgrade music festivals, concerts and other products, promote the healthy development of new formats such as script entertainment and tourism performing arts, and promote the integration of food, performances, sports, health care, Chinese medicine and other fields with tourism. In addition, we will promote the brand building of a new batch of national cultural and tourism consumption demonstration cities, national tourist resorts, 5A-level scenic spots, national night cultural and tourism consumption gathering areas, build a good platform carrier, and increase the intensity of benefiting the people.

"Culture and tourism business environment and market order are related to the vital interests of the majority of business entities and consumers." According to the press conference, the Ministry of Culture and Tourism started with relaxing market access and actively innovating supervision methods to stimulate the vitality of the cultural and tourism markets and help the industry develop with high quality. We will fully implement the negative list system for market access and the review system for fair competition, delegate a number of administrative examination and approval items, and reasonably reduce the time limit for examination and approval. At the same time, explore the formulation of inclusive and prudent policies for new formats to boost market development confidence. For example, new formats such as scripted entertainment and e-sports hotels have been introduced with inclusive and prudent supervision policies, and regulatory methods suitable for the characteristics of the industry have been formulated, and a policy transition period has been set up to create an inclusive, stable and predictable policy environment, leaving enough room for the development of new formats. Adhere to administration according to law, formulate and revise a number of policies and regulations on commercial performances, cultural entertainment, online travel management, introduce regulations on credit management in the cultural and tourism markets, and constantly improve policies and regulations.

In the implementation of the national cultural digitalization strategy, the Ministry of Culture and Tourism has continuously promoted the digital development and transformation of cultural relics, classics and various artistic works resources. For example, the Palace Museum keeps about 1.86 million pieces of cultural relics. It is understood that 900,000 pieces have been digitally collected, accounting for about 48%. At the same time, vigorously promote the application of digital technology and foster the development of new formats. For example, in the field of stage art, we should vigorously promote online and offline integration, performance and broadcasting at the same time, actively promote offline performances, vigorously promote the development of stage art in the direction of networking and digitalization, and create a "second theater." In addition, improving the digital service capability of cultural services includes promoting the construction of smart library system and public cultural cloud. Up to now, in addition to the national public cultural cloud, there are public cultural clouds in more than 200 places in China, with a total resource of more than 1530TB, which is conducive to reading and popularizing art for all.

Systematic protection of intangible cultural heritage is an important aspect of building a strong cultural country. Up to now, there are more than 100,000 non-legacy representative projects at all levels in China, including 1,557 national non-legacy representative projects, and more than 90,000 representative inheritors at all levels, including 3,062 national non-legacy representative inheritors. At the same time, a total of 43 projects are included in UNESCO’s non-legacy list and roster. Lu Yingchuan introduced that in order to protect and inherit the intangible heritage, the Ministry of Culture and Tourism will continue to exert efforts in policies and regulations system, directory system, theoretical research system, talent team system, communication and promotion system, heritage experience facilities construction and digital protection in accordance with the requirements of systematic protection, so as to protect and inherit the intangible heritage in a down-to-earth manner.
