Countries in the Western Hemisphere are being urged to work together to secure their rightful share of the world’s cultural market.
This appeal from Minister of Culture, John King, during the Opening Ceremony of the OAS meeting of Ministers of Culture and Highest Appropriate Authorities.
He says no other region has the wealth of creativity which exists within this hemisphere.
And we can no longer afford to sit back and allow others to take ownership of what is ours.
Meantime, Permanent Secretary, Jehu Wiltshire, supports the creation of a cultural satellite account, so the sector’s contribution to the economy can be clearly seen.
