CANNES - State-owned China Record Shanghai Corp. has signed a groundbreaking deal with L.A. publishers AIM Group to break Chinese talent in U.S. and Europe, in a pact brokered at music confab Midem. AIM will market CRSC's 60,000-strong catalog of titles while Western artists will get the chance of exposure in China in a long-term relationship "We are keen for Chinese music to go abroad and for the outside world to have contact with the Chinese music industry," CRSC general manager Zhao Daxin said. China's first trip to Midem was recognized by this year's conference "Music Business in China--New, Big and Undiscovered."

Speakers, including Gary Ge Chen of Pulay Talent Agency, Modern Sky CEO Lihui Shen, New Style's Timothy Xu and Daxin agreed that a lot of work needed to be done in China to better regulate copyright protection and publishing to boost the creative industry -- both for local repertoire and imports. The China deal wasn't the only one that augured well for music from the Asia region. Taiwan revealed a major effort to invest in the music industry in its country, to diversify its income streams away from manufacturing.

Some $2 million will be used to build the first national audiovisual database that will be maintained by the government. The database will be available free to all sectors of the industry. Joseph Lee, of the Taiwan government information office, said, "We want to create opportunities for increased employment, to stimulate local production coming from the audiovisual sector."
