The first comprehensive report of the UK’s digital economy has been published, prompting Prime Minister David Cameron to champion the country’s position as a “global hub of technology excellence”.
The Tech Nation report revealed that digital job growth will outperform all other occupation categories by 2020, while 90% of the UK’s digital companies expect their revenue to rise in 2015.
“Backing the industries of the future is a key part of our long-term economic plan to support business, create more jobs and build a more resilient economy,” Cameron said.
“The digital economy has become an integral part of our country and the rapid growth of many digital businesses has confirmed Britain’s position as a global hub of technology excellence.
“We are committed to supporting the growth of our digital industry nationwide and Tech Nation shows the great innovation and thriving entrepreneurial spirit that is driving the sector forward across the country”.
