The second panel discussion will look at how the two countries can partner as far as locations, infrastructures, and know-how tools are concerned.



HKTDC director of service promotion Raymond Yip, enthused, "This is a very good sign for Hong Kong and Asia that the French film and television business community is looking east again. This is by far the largest delegation of film and television professionals that have descended upon Asia from France. I am certain that 2005 will be a turning point in the growing interest of Hong Kong as a film and entertainment capital."
