JCC Director's Diary  

Anime Festival Asia 2009 and Animation Asia Conference Dinner

Anime Festival Asia 2009 took place in Suntec Convention Centre on November 21 and 22. It was an event supported by JCC and I was invited to Animetion Conference Dinner on the eve of AFA where many of wellknown anime and media business people gathered.


Among them was Tsuguhiko Kadokawa next to me. He is Chairman and CEO of Kadokawa Group Holdings, one of the largest publishers in Japan. A lot of anime creators and CEOs of anime related companies were enthusiastic about future of their business in Singapore and Southeast Asia.


I made a guest speech wishing that the power of anime will save the world from economic crisis and advertised JCC for future anime events which some of the invitees there may want to hold in collaboration with JCC.
