Chair of Shanghai TV Festival Organizing Committee
In the June of Shanghai, the TV industry practitioners gather together to welcome the grand event interwoven with ideas, thoughts and achievements - the 23rd Shanghai TV Festival. Today, on behalf of State Administration of Press, Publication, Radio, Film and Television of China and the Shanghai TV Festival Organizing Committee, I would like to extend my gratitude to the friends who have always shown their concern and support to the Shanghai TV Festival and the development of the Chinese TV industry.
For the time being, the global TV industry is speeding up its transformation and upgrading, accompanied by the profound integration of TV media and constant extension of communication platforms, but our pursuit for quality content is a permanent topic. In the new audio and visual era which is experiencing huge renovation, we encourage and support the Chinese TV workers to keep steady cultural confidence, stay true to the mission for excellence and properly interpret Chinese stories in order to provide more high quality programs and works. We aspire to meet the spiritual and cultural needs of the public and promote international humanity and culture exchanges.
As one of the most important international TV exchange and collaboration platforms in Asia, the Shanghai TV Festival consistently grasps the current trend, and persistently promotes TV culture and TV industry development with an open and inclusive attitude. Through a series of deliberately planned projects featuring program selection, showcase, forum and international film & TV market, the 23rd Shanghai TV Festival will play its role as a platform to display achievements, exchange experience and facilitate cooperation, as well as a presenter of a substantial and splendid TV feast to the audience, hoping to make contribution to the further growth of the TV industry.
