Deputy Han Baosheng ------

Discover culture essence to mold cultural confidence -----

Han Baosheng, NPC Deputy, vice director of Standing Committee of Xi’an Municipal People’s Congress, and deputy dean of Xi’an Academy of Fine Arts, said, Xi’an is an international metropolis; developing cultural industry is not only a strategic measure to strengthen national cultural soft power, but also an era choice to promote national economic hard power. Xi’an possesses profound historic and cultural resources, and has the responsibility to carry forward excellent traditional culture, forge cultural highland, implement cultural guidance, initiate development advantages of the Silk Road Economic Belt, and carry the cultural development flag. Therefore, we must use the innovation thought to make greater achievements, set up cultural confidence and innovate cultural concept. Discovering and carrying forward operatic culture essence and putting forth effort to forge national-level operatic cultural industrial base are the theoretical practices for the realization of cultural self-consciousness and confidence, which can inject a new force and new vitality for the construction of cultural Xi’an.

Han thought, when developing economy, culture will go first. The “Belt and Road” strategy has become the fusion agent for countries along the “Belt and Road” to conduct in-depth cultural exchanges and the “soft” support for urban economic and trade cooperation. In front of such a historic opportunity, we should deeply excavate the cultural value of Chinese operatic sites and combine the cultural background with modern tourism development, deeply discover the connotation of cultural heritages and form a new cultural tourism industry chain of Xi’an led by traditional opera culture, and forge a Xi’an cultural tourism brand, so that it can substantially promote Xi’an to be an international metropolis cultural center.

On the other hand, Hanzhong has sound ecological environment and distinct regional advantages; especially, the completion of Xi’an-Chengdu dedicated passenger line and the discovery of the mega-size Tiankeng group provide a rare opportunity for quickening to form the east-west linkage and south-north integration Shaanxi-Sichuan-Chongqing-Hubei trans-regional tourism development big pattern.
