Trade Secretary Alfredo Pascual has high hopes for Filipino artists in the creative industry, predicting more stable and better-paying jobs in the future.

At the Philippine Creative Industries Summit (PH CIS 2023) held on March 7, 2023, at the Philippine International Convention Center (PICC) under the banner “Malikhaing Pinoy,” Pascual shared the DTI’s plans and programs for the creative industries, which the agency considers a priority industry.

Pascual, who is also the chairman of the Philippine Creative Industries Development Council, believes that promoting the creative industry will lead to inclusive and sustainable economic growth and development.

Pascual announced plans to establish a creative venture fund and expand financial support schemes to help creative enterprises and workers sustain and expand their operations.

The DTI will also establish Creative Learning Academies to encourage collaboration among professionals and aspiring creators and provide access to new technologies.

Moreover, the DTI will expand the Philippine Skills Framework to ensure that the workforce has the necessary skills to match the requirements of future jobs, making Filipino artists and talents more competitive in a constantly evolving industry landscape.
