Brazil promotes exports of cultural goods

The Ministry of Culture launched this Thursday (1) a guide focusing on encouraging cultural entrepreneurs to expand their businesses abroad.

Brasília – The Ministry of Culture (MinC) launched, this Thursday (1), in São Paulo, the first Manual de Exportação de Bens e Serviços Culturais do Brasil (Manual for the Exports of Brazil’s Cultural Goods and Services). It aims to encourage cultural entrepreneurs to expand their businesses to the global market. The document is available at the ministry’s website – http://www.cultura.gov.br/ – and includes five sectors of the creative industry: TV and digital media, cinema, music, games and advertising.

“Anyone that studies carefully Brazil’s creative economy will realize that there’s a clear disparity between the quality, excellence and penetration in the domestic market and the penetration of our cultural goods and services in the foreign market. This means that we’re losing a great opportunity,” said the minister of Culture, Sérgio Sá Leitão, in an event at Unibes Cultural.

Information that was spread out through many agencies were gathered to facilitate the procedures for the cultural entrepreneur. Access to markets, visa requirements, tax systems, fees, required documents, processing time, contract models, trade expos, are some of the points detailed in the guide. In addition to all this, also available are the links to the websites of public and private organizations involved with exports.
