Cultural Industries

The most prominent cultural industries are commercial TV productions, animation productions (there are 2 companies, but they merely deliver services for TV stations, often Gulf stations), and advertising (♥). The Arab market, more precisely the Gulf market, is the main market for TV series and animations. Supporting the private production of cinema and offering facilities to private banks to be partners in the film industry are goals of the 10th Five-Year Plan.
