Hong Kong to boost cultural business

Tsang unveils Creative Industry Office

HONG KONG — The Hong Kong government says it wants to reinforce the territory’s role in the cultural industries.

In his annual policy address to the Legislative Council, Hong Kong’s equivalent of a parliament, Chief Executive Donald Tsang announced the establishment of a Creative Industry Office on Wednesday.

New body, answerable to the Commerce and Economic Development Bureau, will integrate resources from departments including the Television and Entertainment Licensing Authority, the Innovation and Technology Commission, the Office of the Government Chief Information Officer and the Trade and Industry Department.

“The new office will co-ordinate the work of different departments and work closely with the trades to boost the development of creative industries,” Tsang said. “It will also consider providing more effective support for our creative industries through integration of resources.”
