Cinema, music and scenic arts, in the rise

Honduras celebrated the Global Entrepreneurship Week, an international initiative that introduces entrepreneurship to young people in six continents, one week each November, through local, national and global activities designed to help them explore their potential as innovators.

During the activities in Honduras, a study from the Secretariat for Central American Economic Integration was released by newspaper La Prensa. The report shows that Central American exports have diversified its products in the last years. In the case of Honduras, exports from the creative industries have increased since 2015, with the country improving the number of exports from industries related with the generation or exploitation of knowledge and information.

Camilo Bendec, general director of Intellectual Property of Honduras, specifically highlighted the commercialization of cinema, music and scenic arts products, although there is still work to be made regarding the registration of those type of products. "There are quite a few ideas of Honduran entrepreneurs that are not registered, meaning that there is a lot of Intellectual Property not documented and therefore that creative industries exports could be even higher", explained Carlos Coca Singh, professor at the National Autonomous University of Honduras of the Sula Valley.
