Creative Industries Council Up and Running

Minister of Culture, Gender, Entertainment and Sport, Hon. Olivia Grange, says the National Cultural and Creative Industries Council is now up and running.

Making her contribution to the 2019/20 Sectoral Debate in the House of Representatives on July 23, Ms. Grange noted that although only partly staffed, the Council has initiated actions in accordance with its seminal role – making things easier for the creative sector to access the mechanisms needed for their advancement.

“The Council, which resides in my Ministry, is now poised to take on the collation of data on the industry. This is essential for decision-making. We have been speaking about the paucity and inaccuracy of data for a very long time, so we are ensuring that this is done,” she said.
