  A greater cooperation between the Chinese and Mexican TV markets was pledged yesterday following a meeting between Gong Xueping, the chief of STVF and the President of Global Media Distribution.

  Mr Gong, the Honorary Chairman of the 8th STVF Organizing Committee and Deputy Secretary of Shanghai Municipality met Pedro Font at the International Convention Center to exchange ideas on promoting cooperation.

  Praising the success of the 8th STVF, Mr Font said: "The 8th STVF is the best one that I have ever attended, so I will never miss any chances of taking part in TV activities held in Shanghai."

  Mr Gong thanked his Mexican counterpart for his support and suggestions to STVF. He said: "I am glad that Mr Font speaks highly of our STVF, but we are a long way from achieving our ultimate aims. I believe that as long as there is a good cooperation between us, within four years STVF will become one of the most influential TV festivals in the world."

  The rapid development of Shanghai's radio and TV culture was yesterday lavished with praise by Asia Television (HK) head Feng Xiaoping.

  Mr Xiaoping, the Executive President, made his positive comments during discussions at the Shanghai Convention Center with Gong Xuping, the Honorary Chairman of the STVF Organizing Committee and Deputy Secretary of Shanghai Municipality.

  The two parties exchanged ideas about how to face the competition of new media and how to continue the cooperation in the future.

  Mr Feng talked about the production of TV films and the internal reform of ATV. Meanwhile he showed much admiration for Shanghai's speedy absorption of modern TV and radio methods.

  Later, Mr Gong gave an introduction to the joint operation of the Shanghai radio, film & TV system with the Culture Bureau. He hoped that both sides could learn from each other and play more active role in the new century.
