The global digital services market will be worth as much as the entire UK economy by 2020.

Our digital economy strategy 2015 to 2018 shows how we will spend £30 million a year over the next 4 years to support innovative business projects in this area and to provide core funding for the Digital Catapult centre, the Open Data Institute and Tech City UK.

It identifies the opportunities before business and the areas that will be the focus of our support.
