HONG KONG —

Leon Lai says he's delighted to be the ambassador for Entertainment Expo Hong Kong.

The veteran entertainer says he wanted to do something and Hong Kong has a lot of singers and actors, "who are making albums and shooting films here, they're supporting this industry as well."

He spoke Tuesday before the expo starting March 18 that covers film, television, digital entertainment and music.

Lai also says he enjoyed Taiwanese director Ang Lee's "Life of Pi." The special effects-heavy film was made mostly in Taiwan and won four Academy Awards.

But Lai says comparisons to the government support offered in Taiwan are not useful for Hong Kong's film industry.

It depends on what filmmakers ask. He says, "If we have a reasonable request, I think the government will support us."
