New figures show that Britain’s creative industries are worth a record £76.9 billion – further encouraging news on the health of our economy.
Our creative industries – from film to IT to product design – are recognised as world leaders around the globe and these figures show that they continue to grow from strength to strength.
In just two years we’ve seen over 100,000 new jobs created in IT and almost 30,000 new jobs in our design industry – jobs that are providing families with economic security and a pay packet at the end of the month.
These figures are a testament too to the importance of our long-term economic plan. It is vital we keep on the road to a stronger economy, helping our businesses create the jobs that Britain needs.
