The 2016 National Governance Forum co-hosted by COSC and www.news.cn was held at the Capital Hotel on November 24th, with a focus on “new normal, new economy and new dynamism”. At the Roundtable “Creative Economy: Fostering New Business Models”, Fan Di’an, Researcher of CCICH and President of the Central Academy of Fine Arts, said that the art industry is an important part of the creative economy. Its cultural quality should be improved.
Fan believes that the creative economy is not limited to the cultural industry. The cultural quality and connotations should be improved. Social benefits should be assessed.
In recent years, financial capital has flown into the art sector at a fast speed. This helps create an entire value chain and promote cooperation and development across different sectors. Some major private companies have made investment in the cultural and art industries. These industries have grown very fast in China.
When talking about the art market in China, he believes that the art market has two features. On the one hand, it is an important economic and social indicator. On the other hand, it has its own curves. Sound macro-economic performance does not necessarily mean that the art market will perform equally well. There is no correlation between the two. As the cultural needs of the society grow, the art market can still develop in a sound way. In the past, it was international and outward-oriented. Now, it is more local and inward-oriented.
