One of the real sectors that becomes really important for Indonesia is creative economy. President Joko Widodo has once stated his optimism that creative economy will become the backbone of Indonesia’s economy. While other sectors highly rely on natural resources, the strength of creative economy lies on human resources. Art, architecture, books, innovation of technology, animations, are all the result of human mind’s creativity.

To make this happen, in 20 January 2015, through the Indonesian Presidential Regulation No.6 Year 2015 in regards to Creative Economy Institution, President Joko Widodo established a new non-ministry institution called Badan Ekonomi Kreatif (BEKRAF). This institution holds the responsibility to the development of creative economy in Indonesia. BEKRAF is responsible to support the president in formulating, establishing, coordinating, and synchronizing policies of creative economy.
