DTG News Roundup
The DTG’s response to the Government’s Industry Strategy
23 January 2017
The DTG was delighted to note the Prime Minister’s comment that the Government’s Industrial Strategy offers ‘…the change to build that stronger, fairer Britain that stands tall in the world and is set up to succeed in the long-term.’
This resonates with our belief that Innovation moves cyclically between global regions. Many of our US and European digital, creative and television partners are currently looking to the UK to innovate and lead. This offers a great opportunity for the UK to drive best practice in both technology and commercial business models. Together we can develop the necessary talent to overcome skills shortages, while delivering an unrivalled viewer experience.
Richard Lindsay-Davies, CEO of the DTG said: “We welcome the Government’s Industrial Strategy initiative and look forward to working with Sir Peter Bazalgette who is focused on ‘the Creative Industries’. Peter’s unrivalled heritage in television gives him a unique understanding of the issues our industry faces.”
