At Taipei International TV, Film and Digital Content Exhibition, Taiwan's Vice President Annette Lu "stressed the importance of creativity and culture, saying they add to peace and human rights as key components to what she termed as 'soft power,' forces that propel Taiwan in the international community in the absence of formal diplomatic ties with most nations in the world. She also expressed the hope that Taiwan will one day develop a robust and vibrant film industry to be known internationally as 'Tollywood.'" The China Post, 24 November 2007.
