Culture and Creative Industries in Germany, Monitoring of Selected Economic Key Data on Culture and Creative Industries

Culturelink announces the publication of the report Culture and Creative Industries in Germany, Monitoring of Selected Economic Key Data on Culture and Creative Industries by Michael Soendermann, Federal Ministry of Economics and Technology (Germany).

The report is presented in these terms: "In continuation of the German discussion, the Initiative Culture and Creative Industries of the German Federal Government, managed by the Federal Ministry of Economics and Technology and the Federal Commissioner for Cultural and Media Affairs, have established a monitoring mechanism to report on current economic key data of culture and creative industries.

"The analysis presented in this new monitoring report aims in particular at investigating the development potential of the culture and creative industries. The aggravating trend of the difficult year 2009 has also had consequences for the culture and creative industries. Yet, culture and creative industries have continued to gain importance as an independent economic field during the year, not only through activities on the local, regional, and national level, but also through growing attention at the European level."

The report is available on the Culturelink website.
