About Us

It is believed that the development of a country's creative economy requires more than just “people.” It also needs “spaces” that have the potential to facilitate people coming together and creating an environment and coexistence system that eventually becomes a city. This space must have the ability to accumulate and create value from “assets”, as it is an essential element that sets a city apart.

The Creative Economy Agency (CEA) focuses on driving "Creative Cities" by developing small areas into "Creative Economy Districts." This is because when many districts have economic opportunities and good quality of life, it creates a positive sum effect that benefits the entire city.
