National Roundtable Meeting on the Development of the Creative Sector in Mongolia
As the “Creative Industries Development for the Diversity of Cultural Expressions” project is coming to an end, UNESCO is organizing a National Roundtable Meeting to present the results obtained following the development of the strategy and action plan at the national level.
The “Creative Industries Development for the Diversity of Cultural Expressions” project led by UNESCO and with the financial and technical assistance of the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism of the Republic of Korea stemmed from the observation that cultural and creative industries in Mongolia were gradually developing, in particular with the spread of new media and technology across the country.
The main objective of this project was to establish a practical framework for the sustainable development of cultural and creative industries in Mongolia, and raise awareness of the contributions of those industries to sustainable development.
Following capacity-building training workshops, and framework data collection for evidence-based policy-making which were achieved throughout the different phases of the project, the national roundtable meeting will present the outcomes of the project to the Mongolian authorities with the aspiration to raise awareness and prompt future implementation of policy recommendations.
