Government Launches Digital Charter at World Economic Forum

The Government published its new Digital Charter today at the World Economic Forum in Davos. The Digital Charter aims to make the internet work for everyone. The Government intends to use the Charter to agree new norms and rules for the online world and put them into practice. 

Responding to the announcement, Julian David, techUK's CEO said: 

 "The tech sector fully supports the objectives of the Charter. There is much that we can achieve working together with Government on shared problems. Rapid and effective progress will depend upon genuine and open dialogue. We have to ensure that proposed solutions are practical and deliverable and never lose sight of the twin objectives to have the world’s safest and most successful digital economy. The economic and social potential for the UK is huge and as a sector, we are committed to helping deliver that promise."
