Feng Jicai, famed writer, heritage campaigner and CPPCC member, said China is lagging behind other countries in the creation of contemporary works that represent the peak of the country's cultural achievements.

"We have profound cultural traditions and splendid arts such as Peking Opera, but in terms of contemporary culture, we are known for nothing. Culture is living and develops as the times and society change. We should safeguard our heritage while developing today's new classics," said Feng.
