Looking positively at its huge potential, the government is currently continuing to develop a creative economy among the community, especially the younger generation. One concrete manifestation of government support is the establishment of the Creative Economy Agency (BEKRAF) which is directly responsible to the president. Then what can students do to contribute to the development of the creative economy?

This was thoroughly discussed in a seminar entitled "Attractions" held by the Public Administration Student Association (HUMANISTIC) Faculty of Administrative Sciences, Universitas Brawijaya (FIA UB), Monday (30/10). Taking the topic "Optimizing the Potential of the Creative Economy to Strengthen Indonesia's Independence", the event presented several speakers, namely Andrinof Achir Chaniago (Prime Commissioner of BRI and Former Minister of National Development Planning), Dra Tri Widyani Pangastuti MSi (Head of the Malang City Cooperatives and UMKM Office), Vicky Arief (Coordinator of Malang Creative Fushion), and Rizky Emirdhani Utama (the youngest DPR RI Expert Staff) as Moderators.
