AGEXPORT’s Creative Industries Commission established its main objectives for 2019, which include promoting their services on different international markets and developing a special legal framework to improve their competitiveness.

Among other programs, this Commission plans to structure a project to enter the Canadian market. This project includes training, technical assistance and participate at the Toronto Film Festival 2019. As well, it plans a trade mission to Colombia, a second Creative Fam-Tour, among other events.

For 2019, one of our main objectives is to influence government authorities and legislators to establish a special legal framework for this industry, including protection to local film productions and foreign investment attraction; said Mrs. Astrid de la Cruz, coordinator of AGEXPORT’s Creative Industries commission.

This Commission also plans to offer training for its members, including a special certified training program on creative industries, established jointly with national and international academic centers.
