UK Job Growth Slows

The creative industries are worth £146,000 ($220,372) a minute to the UK economy, according to new government figures Develop reported. A report into economic estimates claims that the overall sector grew by almost 10% in 2013, three times that of the wider UK economy. In total it is now said to be worth £76.9b per year. The report also stated the value of services exported by the creative industries was £17.3b in 2012, making up 8.8% of total UK service exports. The creative industries employ just over 1.7m people, consistently rising year-on-year from the 1.43m jobs reported in 2009.
