Chengdu, a major city in southwest China, aims to become an important national creative cultural center, according to the latest overall plan of the city.
At the annual local Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference (CPPCC) and National People's Congress, the city's top legislative and political advisory bodies, representatives shared their insights about how to strengthen the city's competitiveness and its own version of soft power.
Jiang Weiwei, general manager of Chengdu Culture and Tourism Development Group, suggested the city develop its fashion and film industries. New technologies, such as the Internet, artificial intelligence and big data, can be applied to organize the city's own international film festival, he said. Local scenic spots linked to music can be featured on a map to attract visitors, he added.
Wu Ping, manager of the Chengdu branch of automaker FAW-Volkswagen, said that the culture of Chengdu could somehow be incorporated into the designs of the vehicles.
On February 23, Chengdu officially released its Action Plan to Construct Western Culture and Creativity Center. According to the plan, the city expects to become an important national creative cultural center by 2022.
Its creative cultural activities by 2022 are expected to contribute around 12 percent to the city's GDP.
Chengdu will focus on developing eight creative industries, including the media and film, creative design, fashion, music, information service and educational consultancy.
