This chapter begins with an overview of China’s cultural industry development. It then discusses the difference in the cultural industry development of Western Chinese regions; and the cultural industry development plan of Guizhou province. In recent years, China has accelerated its reform and innovation in its cultural system and has transformed some cultural institutions into for-profit enterprises. However there is still a gap in cultural industry development, parallel to gaps in regional economic development, when these western regions are compared to the eastern regions. In order to promote the cultural industry development of China’s western regions, differentiated strategies need to be implemented. Within these vast territories are diversified eco-environments and rich ethnic cultures suitable for developing tourism, leisure industries, as well as distinctive cultural industries.

Keywords:   economic development, economic policy, regional economy, regional development, Western China, Guizhou province
