Bali, Indonesia – Indonesia Agency for Creative Economy (BEKRAF) has been attended and supported Indonesia Africa Forum 2018 (IAF 2018) in Bali from 10-11 April 2018. Mr. Triawan Munaf, Head of Indonesia Agency for Creative Economy explain to the participant about the idea of WCCE 2018 and also the theme for WCCE 2018 that called “Inclusively Creative”. It derives from our belief that the creative industry has brought a new era of businesses. It is no longer exclusive for those with huge capital, but has established a level playing field for everyone to take part in the emerging economy. Geographical area also ceases to be a barrier, as the internet and other emerging technologies enable talents from all around the world to collaborate and work together.  Indonesia also believe that creative economy will be the future of world economy, because when we look at the data from Ernst & Young in 2015 economy creative have generated at least US$2,250 billion in revenues, and employed 29.5 million jobs. Those numbers are equivalent to 3% of the World GDP and 1% of the World’s active population.
