Invertir en la creatividad

Actualmente, los ingresos generados anualmente por las industrias culturales y creativas ascienden a 2,25 billones de dólares estadounidenses, y las exportaciones son superiores a 250 000 millones de dólares. Generan además cerca de 30 millones de empleos en el mundo, empleando a más personas de entre 15 y 29 años de edad que cualquier otro sector y, en algunos países llegan a representar hasta el 10% del PIB. La economía creativa se ha convertido por consiguiente en un motor central de las estrategias comerciales, tanto de los países desarrollados como en desarrollo.
