TAIPEI, Taiwan — A recent merger between the Hong Kong-listed HMV Digital China Ltd. and the
Taipei-based Hualien Media International will help bring the best of entertainment content from Hong Kong and Taiwan to all Chinese-speaking markets, chairmen of both companies said in a meeting with local press in Taipei on Monday.
George Hsieh (謝國樑), chairman of Hualien Media — the Taiwanese entertainment group behind local hits including the NT$2.8-billion megahit “Our Times” (我的少女時代) — said that making Taiwanese movies with a strong appeal in the Chinese-speaking market had long been his goal.
He said this goal was built into the name of his company, which literally means “uniting the Chinese-speaking world.”
Hsieh, who is also the chairman and publisher of The China Post, said he had been in talks for a merger with HMV Digital since the second half of 2016. He stressed that the merger was conducted in strict compliance with the laws and regulations of Taiwan. [FULL STORY]
