Creative industries growing in North’s culture dish – HIE report

The growing importance of the creative industries to the North’s economy has been identified in a recently published report commissioned by Highlands and Islands Enterprise (HIE).
Independent economic consultants, Ekos, who have offices in Glasgow and Inverness, found that the number of jobs within the sector had steadily increased in recent years and it now accounts for around five per cent of the total economy of the Highlands and Islands.
The sector is identified in the Scottish Government’s Economic Strategy as one of six considered to offer significant potential for future economic growth.
