China is working to issue approvals for games that have passed the examination process, an official with the Publicity Department of the Communist Party of China Central Committee said on Friday. Feng Shixin, deputy director of the department's copyright bureau, called for patience as there are stacks of game applications that need to be examined. Feng said during the China Games Industry Annual Conference held in Hainan province last week that problems in China's online gaming industry include a lack of originality. China is witnessing massive growth in its online gaming market, which reached 235.5 billion yuan ($34.1 billion) last year, according to data from the Cyberspace Administration of China.
