The government is resolved to make the Philippines the No. 1 creative economy in ASEAN by 2030, a lawmaker said on Sunday.
""The goal is for the Philippines to be the number one creative economy in ASEAN by 2030. It's now 2023, so we have seven years to do that,"" said Pangasinan 4th District Rep. Christopher de Venecia during the Philippine Creative Industries Month media launch at Metropolitan Theater in Manila.
""Now we have a developmental framework in place because of the law. Now we just need the resources so that we can implement the different mandates of the law, so that we can come up and prime up our performance, especially in exports of our creative content,"" he said, referring to Republic Act 11904 or the Philippine Creative Industries Development Act.
