"Entertainment market strategy in the Middle East"

October 18 (tue)


In 2019, Saudi Arabia launched a policy to promote entertainment and tourism as part of its economic diversification, lifted the ban on tourist visas, and opened the door to non-Muslim tourism. The Arab (Middle East/North Africa) entertainment industry is now attracting a great deal of attention from all over the world. And along with this change, the reality that Japanese animation is widely rooted in Arab countries is becoming clear. In this seminar, creators involved in these projects will talk about Japanese companies' efforts and prospects for the Arab entertainment industry.
