V4 is at an initial phase of support for creative industries, V4 states have some similarities, e.g. critical mass of the clusters, existence of a cooperative agreement, etc. Al though limitations in public support have been perceived and different sectors of creative industries develops in different countries. The largest number of creative clusters was established in 2011 in Poland. On the contrary, a decreasing trend is noted in Hungary where they dominate in Budapest .
