On the afternoon of Apr.14th, Haisi International Music Summit Forum, a significant component of 2017 China (Ningbo) Cultural Industries Fair, was held in S&N Hotel, Jiangbei District, during which 100-plus reps and guests met with each other and voiced their opinions towards the development of music industry.
Zhou Jianchao, president of China Audio & Vedio Copyright Management Association delivered a keynote speech. He stated that the stagnancy of domestic original music in recent years had something to do with inadequate protection of music copyright brought by rapid development of the Internet.
Zang Yanbin, vice president of China Audio-visual & Digital Publishing Association and head of the executive committee of Maritime Silk Road International Music Festival remarked, “Ningbo is culturally and economically profound. It is fully qualified to promote cultural and music development. Turning it into a music harbor or even music outport is possible.”
Shen Haojie, associate prof from the Music Faculty of Ningbo University briefed on Ningbo musicians’ contributions to Chinese modern music. He said, “Since 1890, more than 60 ‘firsts’ in the
history of Chinese modern music have been related to natives of Ningbo. The concept of ‘Ningbo Music Confraternity’ by no means excludes musicians from other regions. Instead, domestic and foreign music talents should be introduced for the establishment of an internationally influential music city.”
Two reps from the UK and Germany respectively gave their speeches named as The Importance of British Music in the World and Its Achievements and How German Music Entered and Operated in China
