On June 2016, the Commission and the European external Action service presented the Joint Communication 'Towards an EU strategy for international cultural relations'. In it, three work streams are outlined: Supporting culture as an engine for sustainable social and economic development. It involves supporting the development of cultural policies in other countries and strengthening cultural and creative industries, recognizing their economic weight and their potential for creating smart sustainable jobs. Promoting Culture and intercultural dialogue for peaceful inter-community relations. It encompasses cooperation amongst cultural operators and fostering peace-building through Inter-Cultural Dialogue.
