Last year, the sixth plenary session of the 17th CPC Central Committee adopted a decision on deepening the reform of China's cultural system and promoting the development of the cultural industry, which aimed at boosting the country's soft power.

"The mere expansion of the economy and the accumulation of wealth are not the ultimate goals for the country's development," said Professor Kang Xiaoguang of the Renmin University of China.

Analysts said China's cultural influence does not parallel the size of its economy, with its publishing, performing arts and other industries dealing with a "cultural deficit."

The analysts said cultural development should therefore be prioritized by the CPC.
