The creative economy is one of the most rapidly growing sectors of the world economy, and a highly transformative one in terms of income generation, job creation and export earnings. Cultural and creative industries are major drivers of economies. In addition to economic benefits, the cultural and creative industries also generate merit to people-centered value, sustainable urban development and development of creativity and culture.
