In addition to vaccination, Sandiaga added, observing health protocols by doing 3M (wearing mask, washing hands, keeping social distance) and continuing 3T (tracing, test, treatment) measure are also important to tackle the pandemic.

According to Sandiaga, there are 18-20 million people in creative economy sector in Indonesia in seventeen different sub-sectors.

Three main sub-sectors are culinary, fashion, and handicraft.

The contribution of creative economy sector to Indonesia’s Gross Domestic Product, he added, is the third world’s highest in the world – after the United States of America and South Korea.
