The Directorate General for Cultural Industries and Book Policy will organise a conference on the Plan for the Promotion of the Cultural and Creative Industries 2013 next Thursday 4th of April at the Auditorium of the Ministry of Culture.
The problems faced by the CCI in the framework on the current economic crisis will be analysed and discussed.
The conference will be structured around three blocks on the main challenges the ICC currently faces: finance, internationalisation and business models. The managers from relevant institutions, organisations and public and private companies from this field will participate in each block, analysing the challenges faced and opportunities offered by different sectors.
The different interventions will expose the public and private support mechanisms, and subsequently, their effectiveness in the ICC field given the current situation.
