Romania is aware of the importance of cultural development and creativity within the Europe 2020 strategy and it is supporting the economic dimension of its cultural and creative industries, state secretary with the Romanian Ministry of Culture and National Heritage Vasile Timis told Agerpres on Thursday, at the end of an informal meeting in Barcelona of European Union culture ministers.

Romania is aware of the importance of developing the area of cultural and creative industries within the Europe 2020 strategy of the European Commission, as agreed upon by the European ministers of culture and the economic dimension of this sector, through its contribution to the Gross Domestic Product (GDP) formation, to supporting the workforce and attracting investment,' Timis said, emphasising the impact of coordinated education and culture strategies on the new models for long-term economic growth.

Timis mentioned the Green Book on cultural and creative industries, which he said has won the support of the EU culture ministers because of the economic and social significance that is recognised to the cultural goods industry. That is why, he said, Romania is supporting the objectives of efficient growth for sustainable economy, being aware of the importance of the cultural and creative industries, while supporting maximising their potentials by consolidating financial instruments to boost creativity.
