COVID-19 has led to a dramatic change of human life worldwide and presents an unprecedented challenge to public health.

The government claims that creative industries, have created non-conservative jobs during the pandemic and this sector could be the driving force of Indonesia’s economic growth going forward.

When most provinces in Indonesia experience negative growth, Papua still have an increase in the economic sector at 4.52%.
