IFRRO comments on EC Green Paper on "Unlocking the potential of cultural and creative industries".

The IFRRO position is  that competiveness of Cultural and Creative Industries (CCI) depends on creating the right conditions for creativity and innovation to flourish.  This requires a balanced copyright framework and the means to enforce creators' and publishers' rights.

The objective of the consultation on the the European Commission Green Paper is to gather views on various issues impacting the cultural and creative industries in Europe, from business environment to the need to open up a common European space for culture, from capacity building to skills development and promotion of European creators on the world stage. The responses to the consultation will inform the Commission and help it ensure that EU programmes and policies involving cultural and creative industries are "fit for purpose".
