    Hong Kong needs to speed up its development for its Creative Industries.

    The Chief Executive of Hong Kong says that the competition is fierce. If we don't act now we will lose our edge to Korean Film and Taiwan Music as well as Mainland Creative Industries.

    In his policy address, he is committed to the faster development for Hong Kong's Creative Industries.

    A Special task force will be set up by the Financial Secretary and Secretary for Commerce, Economic Development to formulate and execute future development plans to revive the glory of Hong Kong Creative Industries (e.g. Hong Kong Cinema aka Honglywood)

    The West Kowloon Cultural District, an often talked-about project recently, was "a strategic plan to promote the long-term development of arts and culture, supporting Hong Kong as a creative economy and Asia's world city," the chief said.

    加強會展旅遊吸引力
    特首曾蔭權表示,面對區內日趨激烈的競爭,會致力加強香港作為國際會展及旅遊之都的吸引力。

    Creative development to be enhanced

    To maintain Hong Kong's leading position as a regional creative hub, creative industry development will be accelerated in the next five years.

    In his 2007-08 Policy Address today, Chief Executive Donald Tsang said the Financial Secretary and the Commerce & Economic Development Bureau under his ambit will oversee the development plan. They will draw up overall strategic plans for future development, complementary facilities and manpower training in collaboration with Government departments, non-governmental organisations and professional bodies.

    Creative capital

    "Since the 1970s Hong Kong has attained a leading position in the Asia-Pacific region in film, television, music, advertising, design and tourism. With intense competition in the creative industries, our leading position is under threat as neighbouring regions catch up," Mr Tsang said, citing the rising popularity of Korean films and Taiwanese music, and the development of creative industry parks on the Mainland. Tourism boards are also marketing their city brands in innovative ways to attract tourists.

    "I hope the recently announced plan for the West Kowloon Cultural District project will stimulate the development of cultural and creative industries in Hong Kong. At the same time, we need a large pool of creative talents and a discerning audience. To achieve this the Education Bureau will encourage the nurturing of creativity, talents and ability in artistic and cultural appreciation in primary and secondary students, and promote university training for creative, performing arts and cultural talents."

    Well, by that rationale you could include anything vaguely related to Southern California or Florida in the respective forums.

    Besides, if HKDL truly was a "part of Hong Kong" now, it would probably be more populated .

    Maybe they can build a real Disney Studio Theme Park this time with working movie sound stages, animation studio and movie sets, start making "Honglywood" movies for the Chinese/ Asia market. BTW, how did that Chinese made Disney movie (the one with the talking vegetable) do in the box office?
