Given the potential that the creative economy has, the government is determined to support the sector, as it is viewed as providing the most job opportunities for young people, especially women.

Data from Bekraf shows that women account for 53.68 percent of the workforce in the creative economy.

Creative economy players also have access to banks to secure capital. In 2016, the creative economy secured Rp 7.699 trillion in capital from banks. The figure surpassed the target of only Rp 4.9 trillion.

It is expected that the creative economy will develop into an engine that Indonesia relies on to boost its position in the global market.
