China's first batch of folk music promotion centers was unveiled in Beijing on Thursday in a new effort to help promote traditional Chinese music and develop public cultural services.

Attending the launch ceremony at the Northern Haidian Cultural Center, Chen Binbin, an official from the ministry's public culture department, said the efforts of building folk music promotion centers are of great significance for the inheritance and innovation of traditional Chinese music and culture, as well as for making traditional culture more appealing to the general public.

He said he hopes that all the 10 listed centers could work together to nurture high-end music talents, present high-quality musical performances, and create fine folk music works with unique local characteristics in different areas.
