The States of Guernsey have released a long term strategy to boost the islands digital economy.
It's part of a ten year plan that hopes to improve infrastructure and regulation in the island.
It is called 'The Digital Sector Strategic Framework' and sets out ten strategic actions for the States of Guernsey, which include:
- targeting high-value, low footprint, digital industries
- direct government support to stimulate the digital economy
- establishing a flexible and world class digital infrastructure
- delivering responsive legislation and regulation
- creating a robust and successful data protection framework
It is expected that actions from the framework will be debated in June.
It's hoped it will help generate increased economic revenue in terms of tax take from sector growth and new job creation.
Deputy Andrea Dudley-Owen, the Committee for Economic Development member who leads on digital, said Guernsey was well-placed to seize opportunities that the growing digital sector offers.
Colin Vaudin, States of Guernsey Chief Information Officer, said the aim is to develop Guernsey into a location of choice for high-value, low impact, digital businesses.
