We very much welcome the promotion of Matt Hancock to Secretary of State for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport. As former Minister of State for Digital, he demonstrated a clear understanding of the value and importance of the creative industries and has publicly stated his commitment to helping to grow and develop our sector, says IPA Director General Paul Bainsfair.
"A crucial component of this commitment will be how the government and ad industry can work together to drive the success of the Government's industrial strategy. We, alongside the AA and Creative Industries Council, look forward to further discussions on this with Matt."
