The 2nd International Culture Industry Summit (ICIS 2013)


The world economy was built on products and is now shifting its strength from service to culture industry, which stands out as a continuous drive for other industries while keeps growing by itself and thus is playing a pivotal role in developed economies.

In response to that, the International Culture Industry Summit, i.e. ICIS, an event dedicated to international cooperation and industry promotion has been initiated by APCEO – an established international economic cooperation organization.

The theme of this summit: The inheritance, innovation and Global cooperation of the Chinese civilization. The summit has received great support from the Ministry of Culture of China and the Gansu Provincial Government of China. In January 2013, the State Council of China has permitted the plan of establishing the Chinese Civilization Heritage Innovation Area in Gansu province, which makes Gansu the only culture development strategy platform at the national level so far in China.

This summit will focus on such hot topics in such fields as film, tourism, art collection and investment, creative design, animation and internet culture. It will create a platform for international industrial cooperation and communication through various activities.
