The Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, has renewed his call for the screening of Nigerian movies in China.

The minister made the request yesterday in Abuja when he received the Chinese Ambassador to Nigeria, Mr Zhou Pingjian, on a courtesy visit.

He said the screening of Nollywood movies in China would reciprocate Nigeria’s gesture towards Chinese movies, which are shown in the country.

Mohammed said it would also be a deliberate strategy to ensuring better understanding between the two countries and also create market for Nigerian movies in China.

He described the partnership between Nigeria and China in the area of infrastructural development as a catalyst for domestic tourism in Africa.

“I think China is a good example of how domestic tourism can propel and trigger the economy; and for domestic tourism to prosper, you need improved infrastructure.

“This is why we are so glad that China is collaborating with Nigeria in the area of infrastructure such as roads, power and railways,’’ he said.

Pingjian had earlier said that his country was committed to strengthening bilateral relations with Nigeria particularly in the areas of tourism, creative industry and cultural heritage. (NAN)
