Zubko: There is demand for cultural and creative projects in regions

Vice Prime Minister – Minister for Regional Development, Construction, Housing and Utilities Hennadiy Zubko says that there is a huge demand for cultural and creative projects in the regions of Ukraine.

He stated this at the Second Annual International Forum Creative Ukraine, which is held in Kyiv on November 8-9, according to an Ukrinform correspondent.

“We are trying to join creative industries of the European Union and show how the creative economy can develop. Today, Ukraine can not only use the experience and technology but also show Europe own experience in implementing creative projects," Zubko said.

According to him, the development of creative industries adds 4% to the country's GDP.

"At present the creative industry adds 4% to the economy in the world. We understand that there is influence of each industry on the overall Ukrainian economy, and it's very important for us to show how the creative economy influences regional development. There is a demand for the implementation of cultural and creative projects in the regions and communities. In many regions, such projects are already being successfully implemented," he said.

International Forum Creative Ukraine is a platform for political and expert discussion on the development of state policy in the field of cultural and creative industries. Promoting cooperation between government, civil society and businesses, the Forum aims to enhance public-private cooperation in the field of cultural and creative industries at national and regional levels. The event will gather international experts on the creative economy, creative professions and culture policymakers from all over Europe.
