“Striving for the Excellent Global City” is the slogan that came out in the 2015-2040 Master Plan of Shanghai. The plan, or Shanghai’s vision, is to build “A City of Innovation, A City of Ecology and A City of Humanity.” Movie production in China and Asian was originated from Shanghai at the beginning of last century. The city government is determined to awaken and activate the historical gene in order to promote the cultural development.
