techUK responds to Liberal Democrat Manifesto

Commenting on the Liberal Democrat manifesto Deputy CEO, Antony Walker, said:

“The Liberal Democrat manifesto recognises the importance of tech in our future prosperity.  We particularly welcome their strong focus on lifelong learning and education.  Enabling the next generation to take advantage of the opportunities created by tech will require radical changes in the education system, as techUK have called for in our Inventing the Future manifesto.  We are pleased that the Liberal Democrats have recognised the need for greater flexibility in training budgets, including how the apprenticeship levy is used.

“We also welcome the Liberal Democrat’s decision to adopt techUK’s call to double the number of SMEs engaging in the digital economy.  Ensuring more SMEs are given the support they need to transition to the new digital world will be vital in increasing productivity and generating growth.

“Finally, the Liberal Democrats have made a commitment to invest in science and R&D.  Innovation will be the key to our success for the future, and that will mean supporting our world class universities, giving public services such as our NHS the funding they need to innovate and supporting business through a strong industrial strategy.”
