This article asks if China can develop a truly creative economy and follow the lead of South Korea,Japan, Hong Kong, Taiwan and Singapore. If the benefits flowing from the creative economy (and creative industries) are so strategic to government, we need to ask what impact this re-evaluation of creativity will have on a country often identified as having an overly regulated cultural sector. While there is ample evidence to support the idea of a dormant and often parasitic cultural sector, this article points to some areas where creativity is emerging as inputs into production, distribution and consumption.
