"This makes the economic engine run for the people's industry. The weavers are alive again.

 According to Minister Yasonna, the exponential acceleration of the creative economy and digitalization of the world, aspects of intellectual property and its protection are important to welcome global trade that has no boundaries. "We will continue to innovate to serve designers, songwriters, inventors and others so that their products have legal force. Creations are fuel for intellectual property and industry,"  Menkumham said.
