Why Beijing Culture Free Port will get more policy support

31 August 2015, China

Beijing is expected to roll out further measures to boost the culture and entertainment industry as authorities aim to leverage and expand the role of the local cultural free port.

The duty-free port, located next to Beijing Capital International Airport in Shunyi District, is part of the Beijing Tianzhu Free Trade Zone. Opened a year ago, it provides a duty-free area for China’s art market, particularly for Beijing, which is home to about 80 percent of the nation’s art business.
