After consultation with more than 300 members at 10 meetings across the UK, the Creative Industries Federation has produced a comprehensive submission to the government’s industrial strategy green paper on behalf of the sector.
The Federation believes the industrial strategy is a once-in-a-generation opportunity to build a modern British economy based on the creative industries and other innovative sectors such as science and tech.
Their blueprint presents a mix of policy recommendations and practical ideas, not just for the creative industries, but also for delivering growth and success for the wider economy and country. The blueprint includes three specific new proposals for further consultation.
- Creative enterprise zones modelled on the government’s successful enterprise zone programme
- A national ‘business booster’ network offering advice on IP, exports and finance for start-ups and small enterprises
- A creative careers campaign to diversify recruitment and counteract misleading and inadequate careers advice
An executive summary of the 75-page document, which has been delivered to the government green paper consultation on building the industrial strategy is available online.
