Ex- Minister Dace Melbārde says countries should offer programmes for creation of new cultural values

To help the culture sector to recover after COVID-19 crisis, countries should offer programmes that will help create new cultural values, like Latvia, said MEP and ex-Culture Minister Dace Melbārde in an interview to media.

Together with colleagues in the European Parliament she works to secure support for culture and mass media.

MEPs hope to develop a clear funding volume in regulations. The final decision will remain in the hands of member states.

Melbārde stresses that the culture sector was impacted the most by COVID-19, as revenue there has declined 80%.
