UK promotes tech & cyber

Secretary of State for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport Karen Bradley travelled to Finland and Sweden where she set out the Government’s commitment to growing the UK’s digital economy which is already worth more than £118 billion a year and employs more than 1.4 million people. The Secretary of State met investors and companies, including at Helsinki’s Start-up Sauna at Stockholm’s Sup46, which brought a delegation to London Tech Week in June this year.

Digital Minister Matt Hancock led a trade mission of UK cyber firms to Singapore. He said: “The UK is a world leader in cyber security and our industry is thriving with exports worth nearly £1.5 billion last year.”
