"The lantern meeting, the economic singing play" has become an important paradigm for Zigong to promote the color lamp industry.
In the 1990s, with the rapid development of the national economy, Zigong lantern enterprises sprung up like bamboo shoots. They seized this rare historical opportunity and actively seized the beach domestic and foreign markets, becoming the new force of Zigong lantern club out of Sichuan and even out of the country.

In 1990, on the basis of successful cooperation, the Zigong Lantern Festival was again involved in Singapore. At that time, Singapore President Golden Hui praised the Zigong lantern as "the first lamp in the world", which opened a new chapter in the development of the Zigong lantern club.
Zigong color lights are added to international elements
The Zigong Municipal Lamp Trade Commission registered the two trademarks of "Dinosaur Lighting Club" and "Zigong Lighting Club" with the State Administration of Industry and Commerce at the first time, and has done a good job in protecting the brand of Zigong colored lanterns. In 2000, the Zigong Municipal Government promulgated the "Regulations on the Management of the Colored Lamp Industry in Zigong City", opened the market for colored lamp management, and subsequently issued a series of regulations.

On August 9, the "Overseas Chinese City - Zigong International Dinosaur Lighting Festival" will be opened in full costume, which is the first festival in Sichuan Province to set up the venue of the Sichuan International Cultural Tourism Festival.
In the next decade, Zigong has set itself a goal: to hold 100 lantern exhibitions in 100 cities around the world, to lead 100 enterprises to "go out" and realize the value of foreign cultural trade of 100 million US dollars.
