Secretary I&B meets Chinese Delegation
Secretary I&B, Shri Sunil Arora today met Mr. Yang Yue, President, Fuzhou People’s Association for Friendship with Foreign Countries and his delegation members, to discuss cooperation between two countries in areas pertaining to co-production of movies and import of more Indian movies to China. Joint Secretary (Films), Shri K. Sanjay Murthy and Senior Officers from Ministry of I&B were also present during the meeting.

During the meeting, Secretary I&B proposed that an MoU between National Film Development Corporation and its Chinese counterpart may be explored for joint production and distribution of films between the two countries. Mr. Yang Yue agreed to look into the matter further. He invited Indian representatives to visit Fuzhou for the 3rd Silk Road International Film Festival. India had earlier participated as a focus country in the 2nd Silk Road International Film Festival in Sep. 2015 and a delegation from Ministry of I&B and Directorate of Film Festivals attended the festival last year.
India and China had already signed an Audio-Visual Co-production Agreement in September, 2014. In the recent past, India had permitted filming of three Chinese films in the country namely ‘Lost in India’, ‘Kung Fu Yoga’ and ‘Xuan Zang’. The film ‘Xuan Zang’ was a co-production between Chinese Film Company Ltd. and Eros (India) International. The movie ‘Kung Fu Yoga’ is currently being filmed in India.
