Under the framework of Tripartite Economic Alliance between Guangzhou, Auckland and Los Angeles, a new alliance focusing on film and animation will be officially established later this year, said Xu Hui, Deputy Director of Sino-Singapore Guangzhou Knowledge City (SSGKC), in an interview with Newsgd.com recently.
Located in the northeastern part of Guangzhou, SSGKC is positioned as “five high-ends”, which is a convergence of high-end industries, high-end talent recruitment, high-end service provision, high-end environment creation, high-end lifestyle, and aims to attract top-flight industries, focusing on their strategic and long-term growth in order to build a strong base for a knowledge-based economy.
Since the cultural and creative industry is a pillar industry of the SSGKC, great efforts have been made to boost this aspect since its establishment in 2011, especially since the last Tripartite Economic Alliance between Guangzhou, Auckland and Los Angeles in 2014.
National cultural industrial giants including China Animation Group and Alpha Entertainment Group have been brought in on cooperative projects initiated in this area. Now South China Base of National Animation Creative Research and Development Center has set up shop in this region, whaving been co-founded with the China Animation Group.
