Rankings. London and Paris – leading the European cultural industry

The figures contained in the European Cluster Observatory’s report on the cultural industry speak for themselves: in 2006, cultural and creative industries provided 6.5 million jobs in Europe. These activities are typically concentrated in the larger cities, but it was London and Paris which stood out the most, followed by Milan and Amsterdam.

Paris Region employs more than 300,000 people in the cultural industry, compared with 235,000 for London. Berlin trails behind with just 60,000 jobs in the cultural and creative field. Paris Region is the leading European employer in advertising, literary creation, museum activities and the preservation of historical sites. London, on the other hand, leads in the field of radio and television.

The study also illustrates the link between high concentrations of cultural industries and a region’s prosperity. “The increase in the number of businesses involved in culture is fuelled by our thirst for cultural products, new forms of entertainment, distraction, and inspiration,” such as computer games and web design, reports the study.
