The creative industries have proposed a blueprint to UK government for growth in a post-Brexit UK.

The assessment from the Creative Industries Council (CIC), a partnership of industry and government, is based on the global reputation and strong recent growth of the UK creative industries.

It believes prospects for the creative industries remain strong and has developed 'Create Together', a five-year strategy to cement the UK’s status as a global hub for commercial creativity.

The strategy identifies eight drivers of growth in the creative industries: digital infrastructure, diversity, education and skills, finance for growth, intellectual property, international expansion, regions and clusters, and regulation, 

The plan includes recommendations to increase UK creative services exports to £31bn by 2020 and to encourage create businesses to access new sources of finance to expand, and measures to help identify and support the creative industries' contribution to economies in all parts of the UK.
