The title of the China Daily article is “Culture at center of plan to develop cleaner economy”. In this article published last week, one can read the following information: “Authorities of the ancient city of Weifang said its cultural industry will be the centerpiece of its new initiative to develop an environmentally friendly economy. […] Local authorities want to pass down and rejuvenate the ancient cultures by developing a modern cultural industry around them. […] Because of the government’s emphasis on the industry, more than 4,000 culture-related enterprises have settled in Weifang, and their combined capital totals more than 40 billion yuan. […] The revenues from these enterprises reached 19.45 billion yuan last year, accounting for 4.85 percent of local GDP. […] Currently there are 208 cultural projects under construction, covering such fields as painting, animation, film and video making and software development.
