Pacific Alliance raises the importance of creative industries

By Vera Abogados - 14/11/2022

Colombia, Chile, Mexico and Peru signed an agreement to strengthen the creative industry of the Pacific Alliance, a trade bloc that makes up roughly 35% of Latin American GDP.

Creative and cultural dynamics are driven by micro, small and medium-sized companies, a sector that has faced the greatest trade challenges since the COVID-19 pandemic. To help promote such sector, an event was held last month in Mazatlan, Mexico, to raise the importance of creative industries and their challenges. The event took place in a hybrid format and featured an entrepreneurs panel, a master conference and three round tables with high-level keynote speakers, with participants from the public and private sectors bringing their expertise in the field.

Creative industries are those based on individual creativity, skill and talent, or which have the potential to create wealth and jobs through the development or production of intellectual property.

The sector is made up of industries like advertising, architecture, visual art, crafts, fashion and textiles, design, performing arts, music, photography, film and video, computer games, radio and TV, writing and publishing, heritage, software/electronic publishing, and cultural education.
