Foreword

Greetings to all of you!
A new milestone has been achieved, a new history has been recorded. With more than 2000 participants, from 50 countries all over the world, the first ever World Conference on Creative Economy has been held successfully. This three-days event has showcased what’s best from Indonesia’s and the world’s creative industries. A global platform of Friends of Creative Economy has also been formed, consensually adopting the Bali Agenda for Creative Economy. A commitment to strengthen our mission, to achieve the Inclusively Creative.
During the WCCE, we were convinced that creative economy has proven to stand strong, even during this volatile global economy. Countries, International Organizations, academics, business-actors, and creative actors have shown their commitment and initiatives in making creative economy the new alternative to establish an inclusive economy. Speakers after speakers have shown their ideas and best practices, responding to even the most complicated challenges. This is our time to recognize creative economy as the future backbone of the global economy. This is the time to uphold the mandate of Bali Agenda, as well as retaining the momentum and the implementation.
We leave you with this proceeding, to delve and celebrate the first ever WCCE. It is a story in progress, and we cannot wait to see what it will be in the coming WCCE.
Stay productive, stay creative.
Together, we can achieve inclusively creative.
