After these years of development, with the improvement of the production level of domestic film and television content, and various efforts made by video platforms to promote Chinese content overseas, the viewing volume and penetration rate of Chinese film and television content overseas have increased significantly.
Yan Chengsheng, vice chairman of the Asia-Pacific Broadcasting Union and director of the International Cooperation Department of the State Administration of Radio and Television, said that my country's online audio-visual institutions are actively expanding overseas markets, and the content, export forms, and operating entities are showing a trend of diversification and diversification. The continuous improvement of influence has played a positive role in showing the achievements of my country's economic and social development to the international community and spreading the excellent Chinese culture. We must adhere to integrity and innovation, have the world in mind, be self-confident and self-reliant, but also be humble and humble, focus on improving the effectiveness of international communication and cultivating momentum, and strive to provide audiences from all over the world with excellent audio-visual products that are both pleasing to the eye and warm to the soul, and make due contributions to promoting the common values of all mankind. .

For example, Disney has successively brought domestic dramas overseas through copyright purchases, landed on its overseas TV media channels, and streaming media platforms like "Disney+".
At the same time, in addition to movies and TV dramas, overseas communication platforms continue to work with domestic partners to create Chinese-themed documentaries. These contents are aimed at the international expression of Chinese stories and the international dissemination of Chinese content, creating a window for Chinese programs to go global. To present the wonderful side of China to overseas audiences, and to focus more on in-depth and long-term creative industries, talent training projects, etc., creating favorable conditions for showing China's image.
Although the aesthetics in different corners of the world are slightly different, the ingenious production of content is a common standard recognized by users in all regions. Good works can completely cross the threshold of cultural understanding. Therefore, in international communication, the entire online audio-visual industry must be rooted in the production of Chinese content and produce the best Chinese content.
Realistic themes that have a personal narrative perspective and pay attention to the details of the story in the grand background are popular overseas. For example, "Meritorious Service" quickly became the number one broadcast in Chinese theaters after it was broadcast on YouTube. Judging from the text of the comments, there are compatriots from Hong Kong, Macao and Taiwan, Chinese living overseas, and Chinese born and raised overseas. The audience commented that "not only saw the grand scene, but also saw the touching personal story".

In addition, short video transmission is intuitive and vivid, with high transmission efficiency, and it is easier to generate resonance and empathy among people with different cultural backgrounds.

Participants said that online audio-visual has become a new "blue ocean" for international communication, and an important carrier for "telling Chinese stories well, spreading Chinese voices well, and showing a real, three-dimensional, and comprehensive China". In this process, we must adhere to several concepts: first, we must adhere to the concept of globalization.
