Mr. Paul Owens, director of the World Cities Culture Forum (WCCF), expressed his expectation of the symposium. “I hope that it can be an effective platform both for global cities to communicate with one another and for Chengdu to promote its Tianfu Culture.” In his point of view, Tianfu Culture highlights friendship and kindness. He is highly impressed by the hospitality and generosity of the people in Chengdu, which is permeated with a unique atmosphere of oriental culture.To get more Chengdu City news, you can visit shine news official website.
Mr. Owens acclaimed the city for its great efforts to develop such creative industries involving music, fashion and design. Through the case study of Austin, capital of the U.S. state of Texas, which is known for its well-developed music sector, he suggested Chengdu should prioritize the industries with distinct strengths and advantages.
Mr. John Newbigin, founder and chairman of Creative England, a not-for-profit organization dedicated to the growth of the creative industries, expressed his hope to help small companies and startups from Britain and Chengdu to get access into each other’s market. “Chengdu is a dynamic and creative city. It provides various opportunities for creative organizations and companies here,” he said.
He also shared London’s experience of developing the creative industry. “Chengdu should be open wider to the outside world and make friends worldwide. And it also needs to focus on its competitive industries, such as the music and game sectors.”Mr. Bill Cotton, deputy mayor of Bournemouth, the UK, described Chengdu in one sentence —”Chengdu, can do!” It means that the city is developing rapidly and full of opportunities, he explained.
Mr. Cotton pays lots of attention to Chengdu’s fashion sector. “We will communicate and exchange views with industry leaders from Chengdu’s fashion circle, and expect to cooperate with them in the near future. We also look forward to seeing Chengdu’s fashion designs on the global fashion stage.”
Mr. David Adam, founder of Global Cities, a consultancy which helps commercial and public sector organizations, cultural and educational institutions to build successful business strategies in global markets, spoke highly of Chengdu. “This is my first time to visit Chengdu, and it is a fast growing city as I expected,” said Mr. Adam. In his opinion, Chengdu is an ideal place both for business and living.
Besides, Mr. Adam gave some advice for the cooperation between Chengdu and other member cities of WCCF, “Chengdu should further the ties with its WCCF peers in the innovation-driven fields. In terms of higher education, it could conduct more international exchange programs for students. As to the tourist sector, it could promote the Tianfu Culture worldwide, by way of exhibitions, as well as music and food festivals.”
