|“The digital economy has tremendous potential for the creation of new jobs and new growth. We need to ensure that the conditions are in place to enable the knowledge-based and creative industries to thrive as we emerge from the current downturn. We also need to nurture the considerable talent that exists in the UK and ensure the workforce has the skills to compete on a global scale. It’s important that the creative industries work together and across other sectors to address the challenges and opportunities they face. C&binet can help to build these links.” Lord Mandelson, August 2009|
