Global City Starts Building Beijing's First Circus Park to Boost Entertainment Industry

BEIJING--(Marketwire - August 9, 2009) - Global City announced to start constructing the biggest entertainment themed center in Beijing by establishing a circus stadium on July 26. The circus stadium will be the first one of its kind, and it's considered to take the lead of further promoting Beijing's cultural and entertainment developments.

Located in the capital city's southern District of Fengtai, the Global City Theme Park is composed of nine sub-theme parks, including the Sun City, Moon City, Forbidden City, Six-Dynasty Street, Hundred-Family-Name Hot-spring Village and Animation Experience City. The circus city is the first to be built.

The Global City is planned to be built on this 1,500-acre land. It's a multi-functional cultural and leisure theme park based on multi-cultural concept and educational functions. The Global City will be the largest cultural and entertainment theme park in the capital metropolitan once completed.

"We will devote our best to present the world's best circus performance to all the people in China and also to the world," said Zhang Minjie, President of Beijing Global City International Circus Co., Ltd. "Our circus arts and performance are to integrate international circus cultures and fruitful elements of Chinese characteristics."

Costing 10 billion yuan, Global City is planned to be built for "Forge and Enrich the southern Beijing," said Mr. Cao Pengcheng, the Deputy Directory of Beijing Tourism Administration. "This new landmark in Beijing would exert large economic stimulus effect in many aspects, ranging from design and engineering to the operation of the circus performance. It is to contribute to the boosting of the domestic demand."

"The Global City will stage circus arts featuring environmental protection. The circus show is a perfect combination of circus, music, dance, opera, martial arts, acrobatics, magic, and modern technology," said Jin Yunjiang, director of the International Circus Town in the Global City. "We expect the show will draw young generation's attention to environmental protection and inspire their imagination about the world and future," he said.

The Chinese Culture Promotion Society and Beijing Tourism Administration started to prepare for constructing the circus town only one month after the Beijing government stated at the end of 2008 that it planed to encourage the investment in cultural industries including circus performance, Chinese acrobatics show and the Chinese martial arts matches.
