The poet James (Teng Choon) Na characterized the unique feel of Filipino Chinese literature as traceable to its Southeast Asian roots. He discussed the hibernation of Philippine-Chinese literature, Philippine-Chinese literature under the guidance of the mass media, and new avenues for the development of Philippine-Chinese literature. He concluded with an optimistic note that Philippine-Chinese literature will flourish despite the challenges of the times.
