The 12th China Beijing International Cultural & Creative Industry Expo (ICCIE) kicked off in Beijing on Monday.

During the three-day event, the 12th ICCIE will hold over 100 events, covering six series of comprehensive activities, exhibitions, trade promotions, forums and conferences, creative activities, and sub-venue activities.

More than 80 delegations will attend the Expo to facilitate cultural cooperation between China and foreign countries.

For Beijing, the cultural and creative industry has become a pillar industry, as statistics show that the sector's added value was more than 357 billion yuan (around 55 billion U.S. dollars) in 2016, 14.3 percent of Beijing’s total GDP.

The Expo is jointly hosted by the Ministry of Culture, the State General Administration of Press, Publication, Radio, Film and Television and the Beijing Municipal People’s Government.
