Korean government established an ambitious goal of doubling the size of cultural contents export, to USD 10 billion, in 5 years. Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism (MCST) is preparing a mid-to-long-term plan for such goal, to be announced in May. The plan will iterate the plans to develop ‘killer contents’ in 5 genres, game, music, animation & characters, movie and concerts. MCST presented its 2013 business plan to the President on the 28th, which includes the aforementioned goal.
MCST plans to work with Ministry of Future Creative Science on its mid-to-long-term plan to create a healthy ICT environment by converging the planning and creation of contents with their distribution and consumption, which is being handled by the two ministries respectively. The close-cooperation between the two areas is essential to the success.
