Official push for Thai animation and character design

As part Thai government's "creative economy" initiative, the Commerce Ministry will take a delegation of government officials to the U.S. in January as part of an effort to bring Thai cartoon characters to international audiences.

According to the Bangkok Post, the officials hope to talk to American producers about "the possibility of developing world-class features on par with Finding Nemo or The Lion King."

The push to promote cartoon characters is leading up to the Character and Licensing Expo Asia (CLEA 2010), which is set for May 6 to 9 at Siam Paragon.

Toys R Evil has more about the trade fair, which also has a Facebook page.
