Re-emergence of Glittering Stars
Our Hong Kong Foundation (“OHKF”) has released an advocacy report today on the Hong Kong film industry, titled “Re-emergence of Glittering Stars”. Hong Kong’s film industry has seen the emergence of numerous talented professionals and the rapid growth of the Asian and Mainland Chinese market. Meanwhile, leading foreign film companies have been actively entering the Mainland Chinese market via Hong Kong, rendering unique opportunities to Hong Kong’s film industry practitioners. Hong Kong must formulate appropriate policies to offer both veteran and young filmmakers more room to realise their full potential, with the vision of revitalising the city’s film industry and making it an “International Film Hub”. Presenting policy recommendations in three areas — financing, production, as well as distribution and promotion — this report highlights ways to develop the Hong Kong film industry towards greater success and higher repute.
Yes,Hong Kong CAN!
Our Hong Kong Foundation released its research report on economic development of Hong Kong. Given what has been occurring in the economies of the Mainland and the world, the economy of Hong Kong is now at a turning point. It must embark on new directions in order to continue to grow and prosper. The purpose of this report is epitomized by the Chinese saying, “tossing a brick to attract the jade (抛磚引玉)” to give out a menu of the available possibilities. It is entirely possible for Hong Kong to become the leading international financial center of the whole world. It is also possible for Hong Kong to become an international center of innovation and venture capital, an international center of creative arts and film making, and an international educational, health care and legal services center in the East Asian region, serving not only Hong Kong and the Mainland, but also the rest of East Asia and the world. Hong Kong still has great potential for further economic growth. Yes. Hong Kong CAN create yet another economic miracle!
