Project Purpose & Description

Argentina is fostering cooperation between countries, people and companies on creative industries as generators of solutions for society. Argentina believes it is a theme of high relevance for all, especially today that digital platforms provide spaces for daily encounters.
This is a topic that has to do with people, companies and countries, no matter their size or the resources they may have. It is a theme that unites, equals and essentially represents an opportunity for all. That is why we support the development of this new economy, based on the collaboration of people, companies, the state and the academic community.
Therefore, we are inviting East Asia and Oceania to think about our future and start building it together, in a series of major international events such as a BIE Specialized Exhibition in 2023, for which Argentina has presented its candidacy under the theme ‘creative industries in digital convergence’.
