I, Deeply understanding the importance of comprehensive culture market law enforcement

(1) Implementing comprehensive law enforcement is a concrete reflection of transforming government functions. Following the incessant perfection of the socialist market economy setup, administrative culture entities must strive to adapt to new circumstances, realistically transform government functions, realize a transformation from organizing culture to managing culture, a transformation from micro-management to macro-management, a transformation from mainly facing directly subordinate undertaking work units to facing the whole of society, reducing micro-level work, reducing administrative examination and approval, reducing direct intervention, and must through realizing comprehensive law enforcement, implement the general and specific Party culture and art policies, realize a separation of the policy formulation function and supervision functions, creating a desirable market environment for the healthy and orderly development of culture undertakings and culture industries.


(2) Realizing comprehensive law enforcement is an urgent need for strengthening market supervision and management. The speedy development of the cultural industries, and especially the exuberant springing up of Internet culture, has smashed the traditional limits between culture creation, production, reproduction, distribution and consumption, the problems in the culture market also often present characteristics crossing sector categories and crossing management departments. Supervision, management and law enforcement organs that used to be set up according to market classification, and old systems set up on the basis of establishing management step over different segments, are less and less able to adapt do the requirements of culture development. Therefore, law enforcement resources must be completely integrated, implementing uniform management and comprehensive law enforcement over the culture market, thereby thoroughly resolving problems in culture market management that have existed for a long time, such as unclear responsibilities, intersecting functions, overlapping law enforcement, etc., providing solid guarantees for the healthy and orderly development of the culture market.

At present, the contradictions between onerous supervision and management responsibilities and weak law enforcement capacity, the modernization of the market and traditional supervision and management methods are still utterly prominent. In a number of regions and organs, have not been able to implement staff allocation for a long time, guarantees are lacking for fees and equipment, which has gravely restricted the raising of law enforcement capacity. Therefore, comprehensive law enforcement must be further stimulated, law enforcement forces must be integrated, supervision and management levels must be raised, and law enforcement capacity must be strengthened.

In short, integrating administrative resources, innovating supervision and management mechanisms and implementing unified comprehensive law enforcement over the culture market, are clear requirements of the Centre concerning government organ reform, and are also urgent needs for the incessant development of the culture market itself.
