In Egypt, the economy has reached a critical stage. Despite this, a 2015 Ministry of International Cooperation report states the economy’s potential for growth. Behind this backdrop, the project aims at improving the policy environment for the Egyptian creative economy to stimulate growth and wealth creation. Specifically, the project seeks to initiate a dialogue between government and non governmental stakeholders in order to improve the understanding of the value of Egypt’s creative economy as well as foster improved conditions for its support. This aim will be reached by the following activities:
Desk research to map existing CE policy and research in Egypt.
Organisation of an interministerial roundtable of government CE stakeholders and an interdisciplinary working group of non-governmental actors.
Facilitate moderated exchanges between the government roundtable and the non-government working group, including EU expertise in CE policy, to formulate joint pathways for supporting the Egypt policy environment.
Identification of priority areas for Egyptian-led CE policy interventions.
Run a 1 day conference ‘Towards a Policy for the Creative Economy in Egypt’, to share results of the moderated exchanges with a wider public.
Evaluation and formulation of policy recommendations
