Nowadays, many nations have started to see the potential of creative industries. However, due to the varying definitions of creative industries, governments still find it difficult to determine which business sectors they encompass. Some developing countries such as China, Philippines, etc., have started to discuss such industries. Simultaneously, managers in creative industries are faced with various problems. This article attempts to provide an overview of the creative industries, and to compare examples from the UK, Japan and China. Such an overview leads to the foundations for the management and research of supply chain for the creative industries.
