BIS Report published on The Digital Economy
The Business, Innovation and Skills Select Committee has published a report on the Digital Economy which praises Britain’s digital economy but argues that the Government must provide greater clarity on regulation and ensure that it stays on track in light of the EU referendum result.
The report describes the UK as a "digital leader" with "significant growth in the digital economy". However, the Committee calls on the Government to set out in its forthcoming Digital Strategy the implications of Britain’s withdrawal from the European Union.
Issues that need addressing include the impact on UK tech firms employing digitally-skilled EU migrants and access to the European single digital market for British-based companies, the Committee says.
