8.1.1 Overview of strategies, programmes and direct or indirect forms of support

Direct state support provided to independent cultural institutions does not cover all requirements of cultural activities: management, production and distribution. Indirect support is represented by the fiscal measures stipulated in the taxation law.

There are no formal socioeconomic privileges for artists, with the exception of some measures taken by the MOC and the various cultural organizations to honor artists on various occasions and give financial rewards.
