Bismillahirrahmanirrahim,

Assalamu’alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh,
Om swastiastu,

Distinguished Director General of the WIPO (World Intellectual Property Organization) Daren Tang,

Distinguished Minister of Creative Economy and Tourism,

Distinguished Minister of Foreign Affairs, Governor of Bali, delegates in attendance,

 

Ladies and Gentlemen.

Almost all the beauty, enjoyment, and ease of life are products of creative industry. Cities, settlements, houses, and beautiful interiors are also the work of creative industry.

Food, music and performing arts are also the work of creative industry. Even various conveniences offered by digital applications are also the work of creative economy.

Creative industry works easily transcend national boundaries as digital technology makes it easy to share sounds, images, and videos.

Creative industry is no longer a local product consumed by only local people, but easily becomes a global product enjoyed by cross-sectional communities.

Ladies and Gentlemen,

When the COVID-19 pandemic restricted human physical mobility,  mobility of creative economy works continued to move around without transmitting COVID-19. Creative economy sector is more resilient during the pandemic than most other sectors. Several subsectors, such as application and game developers, television, and radio even grew significantly with increasing content consumption during the pandemic.

I believe that creative economy in Indonesia and many other countries will become the backbone of the economy in the future. It will get stronger and be considered as an inclusive economic force.

The sector’s development must continue to be fostered in order to become a futuristic sector to grow faster, bigger, and become more advanced.

Ladies and Gentlemen,

Today, a thousand pentahelix actors and creative economy policy makers gathered to attend the 3rd World Conference on Creative Economy, a global initiative initiated in 2018 as a means to promote an inclusive creative mission.

Indonesia will take a leading role in building an inclusive creative economy ecosystem, encouraging a greater role of creative economy in the global economic recovery.

Creative economy sector can serve as a solution to improve the living standards of the community in a broad and sustainable manner since the sector is able to break geographical boundaries, gender, race, and economic status.

Creative economy is expected to be the main pillar of improved inclusive economic growth.

I consider the topics discussed in this conference very important and relevant. Economic revival, the rights of creative workers and intellectual property, inclusiveness and the SDGs agenda, and the future of the creative economy.

I believe that innovation and creativity, supported by a healthy and productive innovation climate, as well as adaptive policies, will help improve the progress of a nation’s civilization.

I hope the 3rd WCCE will produce the Bali Creative Economy Roadmap for Global Recovery to accelerate an inclusive and sustainable national and global economic recovery process.

By saying bismillahirrahmanirrahim, the 3rd World Conference on Creative Economy is officially opened.

I thank you.

Wassalamu’alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh,
Om santi santi santi om.
