Qiang Ying said that the district has been full of vitality in recent years, and has undergone the earth-shaking changes. The establishment of enterprises attaches strong wings to the district’s development. Due to the trending, it is an enlightened move to settle the SCIA Cultural & Creative Industry Center in the district. The district is the source of Shanghai. People coming to the district could not be separated from Qingpu complex. Step by step, they will love the district and contribute to it. The district’s regional development and the cultural and creative development show a rapid growing trend compared with the 16 districts of Shanghai, and the cultural and creative industry ranks the first in Shanghai. Under the joint efforts of the CPC District Committee, the District Government and the relevant departments, the cultural and creative work of the district is carried out in a healthy manner.
Since the “50 articles for cultural and creative industry” issued at the end of last year, the cultural and creative industry of Shanghai has been fully developed with the unprecedented strength. It must have an international perspective to set up the SCIA Cultural & Creative Industry Center in Qingpu. It is necessary to complete the innovation on the basis of inheriting the traditional culture, to realize the new allocation of resources, and to strengthen the horizontal connection among the associations, centers and entrepreneurs to hold together for common development. It is necessary to integrate into multiple funds, and to advance the approach of culture and creation in combination with finance. It is to pay attention to the factor of “human”. Technology integrated with talents is the main support of the industry. Meanwhile, it is to focus on the cultivation of leading enterprises. The government and related departments should give full support to industrial development, strengthen the services, and strive to maintain the work as the Servant. The Municipal Culture and Creativity Office will join hands with the district to strengthen communication, exchange, and connection, in a bid to better transport the resources to the district.
On behalf of the District People’s Government, Ni Xiangjun expressed the congratulations toward the successful holding of the CIIE Investment Promotion Conference of SQD Group and the establishment of the SCIA Cultural & Creative Industry Center. She said that the district has built up the strategic advantages of development of Shanghai in recent years, fully launched the four major brands of Shanghai, and continuously upgraded the urban capacity and core competitiveness, thus maintaining the steady and healthy economic and social development with sustained growth. As for the first CIIE, the district will seize the opportunity, do a good job of “three undertaking and one investment” around the task of undertaking the industrial spillover, and strive to improve the district’s industrial level. The district is making great efforts to promote the cultural industry into the pillar of the national economy. Taking the supply-side structural reform as the main line, the district centers on the leading industrial system of “three great industries, two high ends and one characteristic” to actively promote the integration and development of culture and such industries as manufacturing, science and technology, tourism, convention and trade, and builds the new development pattern of “4+2+X” cultural industry which is characterized by software information, creative design, advertising exhibition and leisure tourism, and has the carrier of cultural creative industry park and comprehensive urban business circles, thus forming a strong district of cultural creation industry with perfect layout, outstanding function and distinct characteristics.
According to Ni, the council members of the SCIA have been closely centering on the core work of Shanghai all along to actively serve the cultural and creative enterprises, giving full play to the role of bridges and ties. The cultural and creative enterprises in the district have played an active role in promoting the adjustment of regional economic structure, gathering innovative talents for culture and creation, and increasing jobs. She hoped that all cultural and creative enterprises would accelerate their integration into the district’s pattern of innovative strategy development with “one belt and three centers”, connect with industrial innovation clusters, pool the sci-tech talents and R&D forces of culture and creation, and jointly enhance the leading function of key industries in the district, the connecting function of major projects, the transformation function of sci-tech achievements and the agglomeration function of entrepreneurship and innovation.
Huang Zhaoqiang said that it is very meaningful for the SCIA to cooperate with the district. The SCIA will focus on the goal issued by the CPC Municipal Committee and the Municipal Government to build Shanghai into an excellent city with global core competitiveness, will implement the specific work requirements for highlighting the four major brands of “Shanghai Services”, “Made in Shanghai”, “Shopping in Shanghai”, “Culture of Shanghai”, and will do a good job in the landing and implementation of “50 articles for culture and creativity of Shanghai”. Jointly landed by the SCIA, the District Government, and SQD Group, the SCIA Culture & Creativity Industry Center can rely on the SCIA resources and the district’s culture to build a characteristic industrial town, and to create the route of revolution tourism. Agglomerating creative agricultural resources, it is included to build a green ecological town with strong cultural deposit.
The district will soon usher in the first CIIE. So we need the CIIE platform to present the local culture attractions of the district, so that more international friends and merchants can understand and approach the district. And the district should base itself on the ecological environment resources with high quality and abundant culture resources to serve Shanghai, and turn it into a world-famous tourism city that embodies the international style, highlights the Chinese elements, and boasts of the Shanghai characteristics. We should dig deeply into the cultural resources, integrate and plan systematically at the strategic level, attach importance to soft design of culture and creativity improvement, and constantly shape the urban symbols of cultural spirit, providing meaningful culture consumption experience for tourists.
