From quantitative change to qualitative change
Hangzhou animation industry to be better and stronger
在今年的动漫高峰论坛主论坛会上，央视财经频道主持人陈伟鸿问 到，早年中国电视动画播放时长有 26 万分钟，全世界最长。但今年的最新 资料，变成 10 多万分钟，面对这样的减量，杭州动漫产业有怎样的定位？
At this year's main animation summit forum, CCTV Financial Channel host Chen Weihong asked that in the early years, Chinese TV animation programs played 260,000 minutes, the longest in the world, but this year's latest data showed they turned into only more than 100,000 minutes. In the face of such a reduction, how would Hangzhou animation industry position itself?
杭州市委宣传部副部长、中国国际动漫节执委会秘书长卓超认为，从 宏观层面上看，我国经济近几年也从高速发展向高质量发展转变。动漫 产业也是一样，内容供给侧也要坚持质量第一。因此，量的减少并不需要 担忧，实际上是一件好事情。从杭州动漫产业发展来看，2011 年到现在， 经历了年动画产量由 3.8 万分钟的最高峰到现在基本稳定在 1 万分钟的转 变。事实上，近几年杭州动漫产业的扶持政策和方向注重 3 个转变——第 一是注重从量的考核向质的提升转变；第二是注重从传统渠道向互联网 渠道转变；第三是注重从国内平台向国内、国外平台两手抓的方向转变。 现在杭州市动漫产业政策是定位成做优做强。
Zhuo Chao, deputy head of the publicity department of Hangzhou municipal Party committee, and Secretary General of CICAF Executive Committee, believed that, from the macro perspective, the Chinese economy has changed from high speed development to high quality development in recent years. So is the animation industry. The content supply side should also put quality first. As a result, there is no need to worry about the decline in quantity. It is actually a good thing. Judging from the development of the animation industry in Hangzhou, from 2011 to the present, it has experienced the transition from the annual animation production peak of 38,000 minutes to the present basically stabilized at 10, 000 minutes. In fact, in recent years, Hangzhou has stressed three changes in animation industry support policies and directions. The first is to focus on the change from quantitative assessment to qualitative improvement. The second is to change from the traditional channel to the Internet channel. The third is to focus on the transformation from the domestic platform to both domestic and foreign platforms. Hangzhou animation industry policy is now positioned to make it better and stronger.
