Creative Industries: Statistics, Exports, and Integration into the Global Economy

02 Jun , 10:00–11:30
Creative Business Forum
Panel Session
Pavilion G, conference hall G4
In partnership with Ministry of Industry and Trade of the Russian Federation

The development of national creative industry programmes and projects is part of the wide-ranging global efforts that many international organizations are carrying out to develop the creative economy. Establishing priorities for creative industries, management standards, and statistical accounting is crucial for Russia, where there is still no clarity in federal and regional data on the creative economy sector. Discussing and coordinating positions in terms of approaches and statistics is an important step not only towards drafting regulatory documents, but also developing exports and integrating domestic creative goods into world markets. What estimates exist on the size of the creative industry today? How can creative industries statistics be recognized and kept in line with international standards? What systemic initiatives in the regions can become drivers for the development of creative production and entrepreneurship?
