Training Course on Nurturing Creative Industries

Creative and cultural industries contribute to the global economy, accounting for 3.1% of worldwide GDP and supporting 6.2% of all employment (UNESCO, 2022). These industries span diverse sectors such as advertising, arts, crafts, design, fashion, performing arts, publishing, R&D, software, and toys and games, collectively generating nearly 50 million jobs globally. Despite their economic importance and potential for socioeconomic development, these industries face challenges such as the high level of informality within these sectors, calling for robust legal frameworks to protect both labor and creative content, gender equality, and weak ecosystems to support SMEs.

This training course is a continuation of the workshop on the Future of the Creative Economy in 2023. It will equip participants to strengthen creative economies in APO members by learning about policies, ecosystems, and strategies to maximize their potential and address inherent issues for the sustainable, inclusive growth of the creative sector.
