HMG - Call for input on the information economy (widely defined) - deadline 15 March 2013

The UK government has opened a consultation :
The government intends to publish an information economy strategy this spring. To help develop the strategy, we are calling for views and evidence from small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs), both technology based and otherwise. This is one of several ways that we are communicating with a wide range of information economy industry suppliers and users.

The term ‘information economy’ is broadly defined and does not encompass a single sector. For the purposes of this strategy, the working description of the information economy is ‘the part of the economy where digital technologies and information combine to drive productivity and create new growth opportunities across the whole economy’.

This is part of building a wider UK industrial strategy.
