Cabinet approves draft bill on basic cultural law

TAIPEI--The Executive Yuan yesterday approved a draft cultural bill that will serve as framework for the development of cultural policies, if it is passed by the Legislature.

Currently, cultural affairs are guided by the Regulations for Cultural Art Rewards and Subsidies, the Cultural Heritage Preservation Act, and the Cultural and Creative Industries Development Act but there is no comprehensive legislation, according to the Council for Cultural Affairs (CAA).

The proposed bill covers cultural rights, cultural affairs, cultural development and related issues, which can serve as the basis for formulating cultural policies, the CCA said.

The draft bill stipulates that the government must hold nationwide public consultations on cultural matters before drawing up cultural development policies.

It also requires the CCA to map out national development schemes every four years to assist the government in formulating policies.
