The Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, has urged the Chinese authorities to facilitate the showing of Nigerian films on television and in cinemas across the Asian country as part of efforts to strengthen the relations between the two countries.

The Minister made the call in Beijing on Tuesday, June 21, 2016, when he paid a courtesy visit to the Chinese Vice Minister of State for Radio, Television and Film, Wu Shangzh.


Mohammed also called for the immediate implementation of the co-production agreement signed between Nigeria and China, and the sharing of experience in combating piracy of movies.

The Minister promised that under his watch, the existing cooperation between Nigeria and China in the areas of information and culture would be strengthened while new vistas of opportunities would be opened for the benefit of both nations.

Responding, Wu said his country is very willing to strengthen the cooperation with Nigeria, especially in the area of films, adding that the two channels of showing movies in his country, television and cinemas, would be explored for Nigerian films.
