A government minister has asked the public for help in formulating the country’s digital strategy for the next five years, which includes online shopping as a major driving force.
The consultation, led by digital economy minister Ed Vaizey, is aimed at developing a plan to cement the UK’s position as a global digital leader and to “show the rest of the world how it’s done.”
Vaizey said he will reveal a new UK Digital Strategy in early 2016, but first wants individuals and companies to email him with what they believe UK firms need to compete internationally.
Among the changes to the country’s digital approach, Vaizey cites online shopping as one major driver and says he welcomes suggestions on topics such as deliveries by drone.
Those wanting to email their suggestions to Vaizey can write to firstname.lastname@example.org by January 19, 2016.
