Creative corporations are becoming increasingly important to the UK’s future economic success and should be at the very heart of the government’s new industrial strategy, a busines figure says.

The Creative Industries Federation mentions film-making, music, publicizing and video games are all large-scale export earners but are often overlooked by ministers.

It mentions enterprise zone, tax breaks and access to finance could help firms.

The business secretary says he was committed to a “deal” with the sector.

The role of the UK’s creative industries, which also includes theatre, architecture, broadcasting, fashion, museums, and galleries was recognised when the governmental forces unveiled its industrial strategy Green Paper in January for boosting the post-Brexit economy.
