Bunche Hall, Room 10367

Cultural and Creative industries (CCI) are potentially among the most influential sunrise industries in the 21st century, therefore both advanced countries and Asia-pacific emerging countries are continuing to strengthen the development of those industries. With the rise of the Greater China economy, mainland China has gradually transformed itself from world factory to world market. China's government has decided to push cultural industries strategically as a key economic sector in the 12th 5-year plan. By promoting it to become a pillar industry of the national economy by 2015, China’s plan offers abundant opportunities for the industry. At the same time, the Taiwan authority has continued to cultivate the CCI as a major national development policy. Taiwan signed the Economic Cooperation Framework Agreement (ECFA) with China in 2010, substantially opening economic exchange and cooperation across the straits.

In the post-ECFA era, what are the charisma and market opportunities of Greater China’s experience economy? And how can China and Taiwan integrate mutually complementary advantages to form industrial value networks and enhance their international competitiveness to succeed in the global market? Prof. Tse-Ping Dong will offer an in-depth analysis of the prospects and outlook for the CCI from the perspective of the cross-strait co-opetitive strategy.
