Creative Economy 2030: Imagining and Delivering a Robust, Creative, Inclusive, and Sustainable Recovery
The revival of the creative economy will be critical for ensuring an inclusive recovery that boosts small enterprises and employment for vulnerable groups in Asia’s rural and urban areas.
Before the COVID-19 crisis, the creative economy—broadly encompassing knowledge-based economic activities underpinning the creative and cultural sectors and bridging art, culture, technology, and business—was on pace to account for 10% of global gross domestic product by 2030. However, micro, small, and medium-sized enterprises (MSMEs) and the informal workers that drive the creative economy have been hard hit by the pandemic. The revival of the creative economy is critical for realizing an inclusive recovery that boosts MSMEs and employment for women, youth, and other vulnerable groups in Asia and the Pacific’s rural and urban areas.
Creative Economy 2030 features peer-reviewed, independent insights that together provide the Group of 20 (G20) and global partners a timely roadmap for revitalizing the creative economy, facilitated by the digital marketplace. It incorporates cross-disciplinary institutional and community perspectives and original case studies, with a special focus on Indonesia as a global creative economy powerhouse, G20 president in 2022, and Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) chair in 2023.
Creative Economy 2030 is an invaluable resource for policy makers, researchers, and others seeking to learn more about the role of the creative economy in delivering a robust and inclusive post-pandemic recovery in developing Asia and the Pacific. It explores how the post-COVID-19 revival of the creative economy could advance the realization of the United Nations' 2030 Sustainable Development Goals, offering guidance for possible global action during Indonesia’s G20 presidency and beyond.
