World Cultural Industry Forum Is an organization initiated to create a ‘world of culture,’ and aims to serve as an agora to discuss global economic growth powered by culture.
The current ‘Information Technology-driven’ epoch has fundamentally changed our lives, including the way we enjoy and share our ‘contents.’ Now that it has become easier for the world to form a cultural consensus, culture’s impact on the economy and world peace has become a lot bigger. The music and entertainment industry, in particular, has played a significant role in facilitating international interactions, and the need for cooperation between companies and experts in the sector are still high.
