The bureau will be encouraging more and facilitate creations of dances and songs  a few months ahead of the national Chinese culture promotion activities.

Shenzhen will also be increasing its efforts in introducing foreign art into the city with is 36 sisters of friendly cities in 23 countries. In 2007 Shenzhen initiated a International Sister Cities Cultural and Art Week, then turning it into a biennial event that lures local residents to come and see the cultures of foreign cities. During last year’s Cultural and Art Week a total of 111 artists from Shenzhen’s sister cities such as Frankfurt Germany and Pusan in South Korea came to Shenzhen.
