The cultural and creative industries (CCIs) are one of the fastest growing economic sectors in the world. In many countries they are growing at double the rate for the economy as a whole - in the UK they are now the fastest growing sector and more significant than financial services. They generate quality jobs faster than any other sector
Our creative economy development programme aims to increase recognition of the value of the creative and cultural industries as a major contributor to the economy of the country. The programme utilizes UK expertise and best practice in supporting the growth and development of the sector locally.
