Along with Indonesia’s economic prospect which is projected to become one of the largest economies by 2030, Creative Economy in Indonesia is also poised to grow into one of the world’s creative industry powerhouses. The outlook that Indonesia’s Creative Economy will become the country’s newest economic pillar is starting to materialize, as can be evidenced from the positively rising trends of the Creative Economy’s Gross Domestic Product (GDP) contributions towards the national GDP.
The Indonesian Agency for Creative Economy (BEKRAF) is the Indonesian Government’s initiative to provide breakthroughs as well as support for this burgeoning economic sector, with the aim of exploring the potential and maximizing opportunities while overcoming the challenges of the Creative Economy in Indonesia. The Indonesian Agency for Creative Economy was officially formed on
January 20, 2015, based on the Presidential Regulation Number 6 of 2015 concerning the formation of The Indonesian Agency for Creative Economy. Every BEKRAF program and activity seeks to fulfill its vision of increasing the GDP, export value, and labor in the Creative Economy sector. To realize this vision, BEKRAF has a mission to build a solid and productive Creative Economy ecosystem through the publication of an outlook book containing updated data, information and reports on Creative Economy in Indonesia. Opus 2019 is one manifestation of such a mission.
As an annual book, Opus is designed to be used as a guidebook or point of reference for governments and Creative Economy players to allow them greater insights on the Creative Economy sector in Indonesia and continue creating high-quality, appealing contents and works.
We sincerely hope that this Opus 2019 book in your hands right now can provide you with the latest insights and information regarding the Indonesia Creative Economy along with its opportunities in the next year.
On behalf of BEKRAF, I would like to extend my deepest appreciation and gratitude to the many parties who have participated in the making of this Opus 2019 book. We hope that this book can serve all Creative Economy players in Indonesia and other stakeholders.
