The media cooperation union was established in April 2016 under the guidance and support of the State Council Information Office of China. Since then, it has expanded from 17 member organizations to 60, and worked on cooperative projects involving television program broadcast, documentary research and development, as well as trainings and offline communication activities for media professionals.

Participants of the event spoke highly of the media cooperation union's achievements in cooperative publicity work, saying that through the platform, member organizations have explored more areas for cooperation in innovative ways, and new industry practices on film and television cooperation and operation are taking shape. They also said they expect more media cooperation efforts and results.
