Animations and games expo opens in Pudong

THE 2011 CCG Expo, a show of cartoons, comics and games, opened today in the China Pavilion in Pudong.

The annual event, in its seventh year, will run through next Monday, organizers said.

Major animation producers from around the world will show their latest creations and projects while children can attend animated singing concert or play interactive games in the 27,000-square-meter show area.

According to a report from the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences, China produced more than 220,000 minutes of animation last year, replacing Japan as the world's largest animation producer.

The total output of the domestic animation industry surged 27.8 percent last year to more than 47 billion yuan. Shanghai ranked the second among provinces and municipalities with an output of about 5 billion yuan. Guangdong Province topped the list with 16.8 billion yuan.

Despite its increasing productivity, China still lacks original ideas and artistic creativity, officials said.
