During the meeting, the Information Minister told the delegation that the current government of Pakistan is making efforts to promote tourism, sports, and investment in the country.
We wish to encourage our artists to showcase their talent and promote the diversity in the cultural landscape of the country through the art of music.
We are open to investment in the fields of film and music as these are vital mediums to promote values and culture of any society.
Talking about the downfall of our film industry, Fawad Chaudhry said that Pakistan was once the third largest film producing countries in the world. He also revealed that the government aims to increase the number of cinema screens in Pakistan.
The Federal Minister also invited the Chinese film-makers to come to Pakistan and capture the scenic beauty of its northern areas.
In October, the blockbuster movie of 2018 Teefa in Trouble got screened in China at the prestigious Silk Road International Film Festival (SRIFF).
Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO) Film festival also screened a number of Pakistani movies in June 2018 including Jawani Phir Nahi Ani, Punjab Nahi Jaungi, Chalay Thay Saath and Parchi.
Interestingly, Kent S. Leung, the actor who played Adams in Chalay Thay Saath, is Chinese-Canadian and the story of this film also focused on the Pak-China friendship in the most adorable way.
Let’s hope our entertainment industry gets more recognition on global platforms so that it keeps flourishing and produce quality content.
