Government has key role to help the UK economy and citizens adapt to the digital future

techUK, the leading voice for the UK technology industry, publishes Securing our Digital Future: the techUK manifesto for growth and jobs 2015-2020. It urges politicians and policy-makers to recognise the critical significance of the global digital revolution. Voters understand that their future and the future of their children depends upon how well the UK economy and society adapts to the new digital world. 65{60f64eca3a32b5bb2ea8b8157c42bed521fa6a22c1f99cb6807b444ebbebb257} of voters believe that it is Government's responsibility to plan for the future [1].

This manifesto outlines how the next five years are crucial for the UK, not just to be a digital leader but to use digital technologies to tackle the fundamental long-term social and economic challenges for the next generation.

Securing our Digital Future calls for the next government to use technology-led innovation to deliver high quality public services; increase productivity; and secure a million new jobs that help drive an inclusive and secure society [2]. The manifesto sets out what the next government, working in collaboration with industry, must do to build on progress already achieved to secure our digital potential.

Julian David, CEO of techUK says: "Tech and digital have a fundamental role to play in almost everything the next government will need to do, as we continue to rebuild our economy for the 21st century. That's why today techUK is launching its manifesto as a roadmap to 2020. The key message for politicians is that voters and industry alike want the Government to secure our digital future."
