Chinese TV series increasingly popular overseas

Chinese TV series have been exported to over 200 countries and regions, according to the State Administration of Press Publication Radio Film and Television.

The export volume of TV series accounts for over 70 percent of all the exported TV programs, said an official with the administration.

Chinese TV series hold competitive advantages in Southeast Asia. Meanwhile, they are starting to spread across countries and regions in Central and Eastern Europe, Latin America, the Middle East and Africa.

In recent years, China has actively established channels to introduce Chinese TV series overseas. The annual sales account for more than 30 percent of the total sales of national films and television programs.

Besides, the Chinese dubbing project has also facilitated the communication of many TV series. Over 1,600 Chinese films and TV series have been dubbed into 36 languages, including English, French, Russian, Arabic and Burmese, and broadcasted in 100 and more countries.
