The UK creative industries are a global success story, and the Government is working hard to ensure their continuing success at home, within Europe, and across the world. The introduction of new creative sector tax reliefs has provided a massive boost to the sector, and the promotion of UK service exports to Europe and other territories was worth £17.2bn in 2012, an 11.2% increase on the previous year.

Over the next year, Government will provide support to UK creative companies to promote and showcase their products and services at 21 exhibitions and events across Europe, including the UK programme at Milan Expo and GREAT campaign activity in France. In addition, creative businesses received over E200m of funding through the European Commission's Media and Culture Programmes, and will also benefit from the new Creative Europe Programme launched last year.
