Local authorities in the county of Liping, southwest China's Guizhou Province, have made great efforts to develop cultural and creative industries in recent years and to provide local folk artists with support in the management of their handicrafts businesses.

The production of embroidery, silver jewelry and other artistic items with local flavors have successfully boosted local practitioners' incomes as a result, say officials.
