China to Invest $100 Million in Comics and Animation Industries

Authorities in Guangzhou, China, will spend up to $100 million over the next four years to develop the region’s comics and animation industries, People’s Daily Online reports.

One-fifth of China’s annual revenues off these industries come from companies in the area.

The government plans to expand international cooperation to boost the industries, even as some local cartoonists stress their desire to focus on traditional Chinese culture instead of imitating Japanese or Korean models.
