Ming Zong, Vice Minister of Shanghai Publicity Department, illustrated the history and current situation of Shanghai’s games industry.
Shanghai is one of the most important places for China’s entertainment industry. Games industry’s development in Shanghai has maintained a high speed, with its total revenue over 33% and sales income ranking the first in China’s games market. Shanghai has more than 200 companies engaged in network operation and R&D; among the 33 Internet publishers in Shanghai, 23 of them are game publishers and Shanda Games is one of the best.
During the 12th Five Year Plan, we will focus on supporting Internet publishers and online game companies to help them explore a larger overseas market.
