Creative Economy and Fostering Regional Industries
In the era of globalization in an open context, central/local governments as the innovation facilitators need to promote economic growth by fostering strategic industries. Under Innovation 4.0, governments are about to establish the big picture on how to lead the creative economy, fostering creative industries, technology convergence and technology innovation. Hence, it is necessary for governments to develop their leadership to effectively support the private sectors by engaging in capacity building programs. Representatives of central/local governments and government agencies will share experiences and ideas on support policies for creative economy and collaborations amongst industries, academia, and governments.
