China is looking at partnering with developing countries especially Africa to boost the entertainment to help better tell their own story across the globe, according to the Asia-Pacific Broadcasting Union.

The union said that the Chinese government is looking at partnering with arts and entertainment companies in Ghana to make documentary films. 

Speaking at a seminar-workshop for selected media and documentary film making professionals from developing countries in Beijing, Professor Jin Haina, a senior lecturer at the Communication University of China, said that developing countries could make great strides in the entertainment sector by exploring documentary film-making development.

The Asia-Pacific Broadcasting Union noted that China produces about 52 films each year, with annual revenue of over one billion dollars from a single film. “It could also be the story of African countries should there be co-operation and sharing of ideas,” Jin Haina added.
