Nishchuk stands for adoption of new law "On Culture"
Culture Minister of Ukraine Yevhen Nishchuk considers it necessary to adopt a new law "On Culture" by the end of 2019 and has already instructed to prepare its draft.
"Our main task that I would like to do before reformatting the Verkhovna Rada, that is until the end of 2019, is to instruct our all institutions, our Strategic Planning Directorate, our Center for Strategic Studies with their coordinators, who are to do analysis and monitoring, to analyze all the risks that may occur, and submit a new law "On Culture." We need to do this because we are facing many obsolete processes," he said at a press conference in Kyiv on Tuesday.
According to the minister, he has already instructed the Directorate of Strategic Planning to do this.
Nishchuk recalled that on June 19, parliamentarians legislatively defined the concept of the creative industry and obliged the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine to determine the relevant types of economic activity in this area.
We are now working on those sub-paragraphs that would enter the "creative industries," which relate to cultural heritage, audiovisual art, education. I am often asked whether computer games will be included. Obviously, they should be included, along with design, fashion, and a lot other things that were left out," the minister said.
