banersazemljamaDigital concept in the function of Creative Economy


International Scientific Symposium “The New Economy 2019 with the head topic being “Digital Concept in the Function of Creative Economy” was held on 16 May 2019, in the dazzling ambience of the Hotel “SATO” in Sutomore, with thirty-eight (38) scientific presentations of participants from fifteen (15) countries. Papers were exhibited by numerous authors from eight (8) countries (USA, Spain, Turkey, Macedonia, Slovenia, Serbia, Montenegro, Bosnia and Herzegovina). Our reviewers were quite rigorous, which resulted in eight (8) papers being rejected.

The symposium spurred major interest as the working atmosphere enabled the exchange of different experiences and feedbacks, as well as beneficial examples of the development of Creative Economy. The main topic was fairly broad, as it enabled understanding on how a digital concept actually acts in the role of Creative Economy. Most of the papers from this meeting confirmed the above.

Presentations of our colleagues from the USA, Spain and Turkey, as well as those of our young colleagues from Serbia, impressed the audience, which is why the editorial board hereby extends its appreciation and recognition. Surely, the other papers that were presented at the meeting were no less significant. Quite contrary, in some segments they were even more impressive and more specific, which is why the entire audience was fascinated.

The general impression is that the participants of the symposium actually recognized and proved that the influence of the digital concept onto the creative economy is enormous.

The birth of an innovative knowledge-based economy is linked to a new technological era that began in the mid-18th century, but its modern version is closely associated with Japanese post-war experiences. Despite the fact that Japan is in stagnation nowadays, new development phenomena are coming into the limelight, such as South Korea, the so-called “Asian tigers”, the economic boom of China, Vietnam, Australia and many other small economies. Global competitiveness shows rapid changes thanks to industrial policy, institutions and tradition. Innovation is not only the result of a high level in science or in high-tech sector, but is increasingly present and stimulates agriculture, tourism, various personal services, production, processing and export of organic food. They also make public administration more efficient, as well as making global cooperation relevant in terms of the main challenges for the planet: climate change and the risk of artificial intelligence. The symposium started at 10 A.M. and ended at 6 P.M. on the same day, with a series of questions and dilemmas that have been initiated thereby, leaving room for this practice to continue in the future, possibly becoming a two-day consultation symposium. Either way, the organizer of this symposium “Oikos Institute – Research Centre” from Bijeljina, together the Editorial Board of the journal and its editor-in-chief, would like to hereby express their sincere gratitude to all the participants on their contribution in making this symposium successful and innovative in numerous segments. The final evaluation of the meeting will be given by the readers of the Economics Journal in which the best papers from the symposium will be published.
