Performing arts are key to achieving the goal of cementing Beijing's status as a global cultural hub, Cheng Yuezhu reports.

Performing arts projects show great potential for boosting the development of cultural industries, says An Ting, a member of the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference National Committee, the country's top political advisory body.

As the chairman of the board of performing arts company Beijing Chic-Pia International Culture Development, An has led his team in producing a number of theater works and promoting them to international audiences. "Over the years, my team and I have been dedicated to the cultural industries, promoting traditional Chinese culture to the world, with the goal of making Chinese culture better known worldwide."

In the past two decades, he has collaborated with renowned Chinese artists, such as dancer-choreographer Yang Liping. The representative productions, including Dynamic Yunnan and The Peacock, have toured more than 40 countries and regions, with a record of more than 6,000 performances in China alone.

As a member of the 13th and 14th CPPCC National Committee, An has submitted proposals for developing the cultural industries and promoting traditional Chinese culture. For this year's two sessions, he will submit a proposal for using major performing arts projects as momentum to build China into a global cultural hub.

In January, "building a capital of performing arts" was mentioned for the first time in Beijing's Government Work Report. According to the report, Beijing will work hard to promote a series of major productions, organize and create a number of artistic masterpieces, and host a cultural consumption season that benefits the people.
