The Beijing Film and TV International Show inaugurated in the Hungarian capital will enhance people-to-people bonds between Hungary and China, an Chinese official said here on Tuesday.
"Within the framework of the Belt and Road Initiative, more and more Chinese film and TV production have become accessible for Hungarians," said Wang Wei, director of the department of planning and development, Beijing Municipal Radio and Television Bureau, at the opening of the show.
"This kind of cultural exchange can facilitate people-to-people bonds between Hungary and China and will create a solid base for further cooperation between the two countries," he stressed.
Maria Pap, an official from Hungarian National Tourist Office, said: "Budapest is a very important tourist attraction and destination here in Central Europe. I am delighted to see more and more Chinese tourists coming to Hungary."
She added that Budapest is a very important and beloved spot for film producers, and more and more international film producers have chosen Budapest as their shooting place.
The Show kicked off with performances from Hungarian dancers and pop singers, before showing trailers of the most exciting Chinese productions to Hungarian spectators.
