This was published under the 2022 to 2024 Sunak Conservative government



Our creative industries are a true British success story. They drive economic growth at home - contributing £108 billion in 2021 to the UK economy - and are a brilliant global advert for our creativity and values.

This government is determined to build on their world class excellence and I am today publishing a Creative Industries Sector Vision that will make sure we do that. This Vision is about maximising growth, nurturing young people’s talent and delivering on the creative potential that exists right across the country. By 2030 - working with industry - we plan to grow these industries by £50 billion of gross value added and support a million extra jobs with a pipeline of talent and opportunity for young people.

This sector vision sets out our 2030 goals and objectives to deliver on this. It is a vision for the creative industries to become an even greater growth engine and where creative talent from all backgrounds, and creative businesses from all areas in the UK, can thrive.
