The experience of Hong Kong's innovative and creative industries and the challenges they face serves as an important case study for other Chinese and Asian cities which are actively developing their innovative and creative industries in the era of globalization. The return of sovereignty of Hong Kong to China in 1997 has led to both collaboration and competition between the two places in innovative and creative sectors for the Greater China and Asian Regions. Hong Kong has remained unique in spite of the integration but she has to strike a delicate balance between being a Chinese and an international city at the same time. This book looks at different innovative and creative industries like international art and culture exhibition, innovative technology, digital entertainment, TV, movies, as well as government policy for innovative and creative industries, particularly the changing competitive landscape brought about by the latest Great Bay Area development. Drawing insights from cultural history, innovation economics, cultural policy studies and cultural geography, this book explores the opportunities and challenges of Hong Kong innovative and creative industries, in particular after the change of sovereignty in 1997. It demonstrates that the city's legacy and government heavy input in capital do not guarantee their sustainable development. This is a book not only for policymakers or academics interested in innovative and creative industries, but also to students contemplating a career in these areas in Hong Kong, the Greater China and the Asian Regions.
