We want to use technology to drive economic growth.

Over half of the UK Gross Value Added (GVA) is from the digital industries, and even in other sectors technology is vital. It has been estimated that businesses that are online grow 4 times faster than those that don’t – therefore all sectors need to take advantage of the opportunities that technology brings.

To help grow our digital economy we will:

  • support businesses to fully exploit digital technology
  • increase investment in ICT-based R&D
  • support and develop the ICT sector
  • support and develop the creative sector.
