Creative industries are the future of Indonesia. This statement is so optimistic but I think it is not impossible even we have a minister of creative industries which they are only 2 in the world, i.e. UK and Indonesia. Indonesian youth are very powerful and unsurprisingly, the majority of our population is youth. They are full of energy, idea and very consumptive 🙂
One of the reasons that Indonesian economic situation is quite steady (the economic growth still positive, like China) during the 2008 global crisis is the power of domestic market, which is the middle income class, particularly Indonesian youth. That is the reason behind the success of this market. Brightspot market is the best market displaying the Indonesian creative products (even though not 100% local product, but at least the most stuffs here are locals).
