G20 Ministers of Culture adopt declaration to support the creative and cultural sectors

On 29 and 30 July in Rome, the G20 held its first meeting on culture. The meeting led to the adoption of the “Rome Declaration of the G20 Ministers of Culture” a 32-point document which inserts the cultural sector within the G20 process, also recognizing its economic value.

The declaration calls, among others, to recognise the “essential role” that culture plays “in fostering the resilience and the regeneration of our economies and our societies heavily affected by the COVID-19 pandemic”.

The G20 also shared the commitment to create special forces to protect cultural heritage at risk in crisis areas.
