Creative economy

Rakennustaidetta. KUVA: TeamFinlnad/ Jukka RapoCreative economy emphasises the significance and added value of culture and creativity in the national economy. Exploitation of the skills, products and services of creative industries has become a significant competitiveness factor for Finland.

The Government resolution on a development programme for intangible value creation 2014–2020 outlines policies for the development of creative economy. The resolution brings together the key policy measures included in the intellectual property rights strategy, the development of business and entrepreneurship in the creative industries, and the national design programme.

The Ministry of Education and Culture promotes creative economy by supporting product and service development, creative expertise, exports and market entries, and cultural tourism. The Ministry also seeks to develop the networking possibilities, internationalisation and competitiveness of actors in the creative industries.
