Chennai-based Pyramid Saimira Group has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the China Society Music Research Board, which is under the Ministry of Culture of the People’s Republic of China, to form the Jiangsu Pyramid Longzhe Group. The newly-formed entity will operate theatres, distribute films and engage in other entertainment, arts and cultural activities in China.
