    At techUK we lead the debates about technology and its potential impact on the future.

As we work through a challenging environment in 2017, techUK continues to focus on what matters to the tech industry, industry stakeholders and our members.

At techUK we lead the debates about technology and its potential impact on the future. We work to ensure that discussions are properly informed, so that the right decisions can be made regarding the development and use of technology for the good of the UK, for the good of people and for the good of our industry.

In 2016, techUK made a significant impact across a number of crucial areas. Key to this was our ability to quickly establish good relationships with new ministers and senior policy makers in the post EU-referendum world. This progress will continue in 2017 in the run-up-to, and post General Election.

Our many successes in 2016 are being mirrored in 2017, resulting in techUK being the clear ‘go-to’ organisation for the tech industry in the UK.

This document highlights a selection of the progress techUK and its members enjoyed in 2016.
