Economic Impact of the Creative Industries
Innovation is a key issue for a competitive business development. But innovation today is very much related to the integration of ICT and creative technologies in traditional sectors. The creative industries as one of the most innovative economic sectors itself , using highly advanced technologies and producing spillovers to many other industries, serve as the driver of innovation. The creative service market in Serbia is comprised of a large number of individuals and enterprises with extraordinary creative capabilities. Connecting them with other sectors can boost the Serbian economy as a whole.
