The Week: Advertising news - Creative industries to grow

Figures released by The National Endowment for Science, Technology and the Arts last week estimate that UK creative industries will grow at double the rate of the rest of the UK economy, on average by 4 per cent, over the next five years.

It also states that by 2013, the creative industries sector - which includes film, music, fashion, TV and video games production - will employ 1.3 million more people than the financial sector. Over the same period, the number of creative businesses will grow from 148,000 to 180,000.
