If the UK is to become a world leader in digital technologies, while at the same time becoming more sustainable, it’s in need of a significant digital overhaul. This is the conclusion of a new report recently released by Public Policy Projects (PPP), Anderson Strategy and Huawei.
The “Connected Citizen” report argues, first and foremost, that it’s essential that education across the country is brought up to speed, through a new long-term digital skills strategy.
Further, it claims that more power needs to be given to local and regional authorities, so that they may facilitate improvements in connectivity. This should be done in partnership with the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sports.
