THE CLUB of Advertising Agencies Slovakia (KRAS), the organisation representing many successful advertising agencies operating in the Slovak market, approved its entry into Slovakia’s Creative Industry Forum (CIF) in late October. CIF was launched in September 2008 with the aim to strengthen the position of the creative industry in the country, the medialne.sk website wrote.

CIF seeks to create a platform for self-regulation within the creative industry that is generally accepted by the public as well as by government institutions, to protect investments made by the creative industry, particularly involving education, and to monitor and cooperate with organisations dealing with intellectual piracy in Slovakia and abroad.

Currently CIF is cooperating with the British Council on a project to support and popularise the creative industry.
