Yuanzheng suggested that the government introduce preferential policies to rescue the theater industry, including the China National Arts Fund providing money to support the industry. "The China National Arts Fund previously supported new theatrical projects and the training of new talents, but now theaters and existing shows seem to have urgent monetary needs and private companies cannot simply rise up again by relying solely on their own devices," he said. "Besides policy support, financial support is very important too."
He also suggested that theaters and companies should band together to promote themselves online in order to draw in larger audiences.
