Israel have the answer!Invite a well known Chinese Film producer by paying them a lot of money to shoot a potential blockbuster.

"We must provide a readymade background for this industry...investment in studios, acting schools or even FX.

Approximately 10,000 Chinese visitors come to Ireland each year. France gets 600,000 while Germany gets approx 400,000.Ireland is an exceptionally safe environment with open spaces,low density and a relaxing pace of life to live and study in, which are attractive features for these diverse and populated economies.
Ireland is known to have at least 100,000 chinese residing, which includes business and educational visitors.The Japanese may also be one to look at, with a sudden upturn in their economy after dragging their heels for growth after such a long time..
