Hong Kong Filmart: "New Silk Road" to Allow Asian Film Industry to Develop in Tandem

"The "New Silk Road" for film industry should not just be targeting the Chinese market, but for all Asian countries to develop in tandem," panelists said at a forum at the Hong Kong Filmart. The purpose of the forum is to find out how Asian film can collaborate and compete with each other to create a bigger Asian film industry. Based upon by the "New Silk Road" concept proposed by Chinese president
Xi Jinping in 2013, that encompasses economic ties and infrastructure construction between China, its Asian neighbors, the Middle East and Europe, the forum focuses on the difficulties facing pan-Asia and East-west co-productions.
