For years the UK has been at the cutting edge of the creative industries - and we want that to be the case for decades to come. This comes back to two things - and the two things that I see being as the most important in my job.
One: promoting our culture. Music, film and television help inspire young kids and bring our country together - so I will always back those industries. And two: our long-term economic plan.
Warner Bros is expanding its UK studios in north London where the Harry Potter films were made. Three sound stages will be built at the site at Leavesden two years after a #100 million redevelopment.
The studios are currently home to the new Tarzan film, starring Margot Robbie and Samuel L Jackson, which started production work there today.

Harry Potter star, Daniel Radcliffe, is supporting Eddie Izzard's bid to become London Mayor. The 51-year-old comedian is seeking the Labour nomination for Mayor of London in 2019.
Speaking to the Radio Times, Daniel Radcliffe said he was disillusioned by party politics:
"I'm not an affiliate of any party. I do vote - I think it's important. The first time I voted, I felt I had graduated as a full member of society. But politics is disillusioning; it's just bickering, it's exhausting.
"I think the next thing I'm going to get excited about is Eddie Izzard running for London mayor. He's really interesting, super-smart and brings a huge amount of integrity - something that we definitely don't have today."
Daniel Radcliffe looks set to play London 2012 boss Lord Coe in a film about his track battles with fellow athlete Steve Ovett three decades ago. The Harry Potter actor will star in 'Gold', which looks at the tense rivalry between the middle distance runners.
The competition between Ovett and Sebastian Coe is seen as one of the greatest sporting rivalries as they dominated middle distance running, setting world records and amassing medals.
The students got the chance to explore famous sets from the films - including Diagon Alley.
They also created photographs of themselves riding in the magical flying car from "Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets".
'Magical,' 'mid-blowing' and 'the best first week ever' - not what you'd expect to hear from even the most keen Year 7 students. But for pupils at Queens' School in Watford it really was like none other. The children had their first assembly of secondary school on the set of Harry Potter.
Two hundred had the chance to sit at the long banquet tables where cast members including Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson and Rupert Grint shot many of their famous scenes.
