In the advent of the diversified and fast-moving development in the media and entertainment industry, there are numerous business and investment opportunities available for Hong Kong, Mainland and multi-national companies. The Hong Kong Government has adopted various measures to prosper the industry. It has launched different types of the Film Guarantee and Development Funds and implemented the Third Phase of Trade Liberation under the “Mainland and Hong Kong Closer Economic Partnership Arrangement” (CEPA 3) which relaxes various rules and regulations in Mainland in respect of the cinema theatre services, Chinese language motion pictures and motion pictures jointly produced under audiovisual services, making it far easier than before for Hong Kong filmmakers and business entrepreneurs to enter into the market.
