Govt vows to boost domestic creative industries

A Minister recently informed that, the government is active towards enhancement of the creative industries in Indonesia. This is being done by extending them promotional as well as financial support, thus trying to raise the sector's share in the country's economy.

Trade Minister, Mari Elka Pangestu stated that, the government would lend a helping hand to the creative industries' small and medium enterprises (SMEs), as it would aid them to not only promote the creative products, but also in building up market access. It will also help promote up-gradation of the quality of those merchandises.

Moreover, the government would also ease access of these creative industries to financial avenues, by means of affiliations with financial institutions.

Pangestu, while addressing the press after inaugurating the 'Indonesia is Creative' handicraft stall at Soekarno-Hatta International Airport said that, they are resolute to further expand the creative industry, it being a part of their endeavour to perk up the country's economy. The stall offers several superior quality handicrafts that are produced domestically.

She also added that, a cause underlying establishment of the stall was also to raise awareness regarding the local produced creative items and services, while reinforcing the country's global identity.

The stall displaying country's creative products including superior quality handicrafts, foods and spas, is spread on an area of 92 square-metres at Terminal II of the airport.

The Trade Ministry had teamed up with PT Bank Negara Indonesia (BNI), airport operator PT Angkasa Pura II and handicraft distributor PT Alun Alun Indonesia Kreasi for setting up this stall.
