“Tech City” in East London has been adopted by UKTI and was promoted by the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge during their recent visit to Los Angeles. http://goo.gl/2sPf6
UKTI is determined to ensure that it becomes the digital capital of Europe
Whilst I wish the potential Tech City “all the luck in the World”. It is blatently unfair that the UK government chooses not to promote the already “World Class” digital technology cluster around Cambridge.
The “Tech City” initiative has been established with £1m of funding from the Technology Stategy Board but it still has some way to go before is can stand any comparison with Cambridge.
London has chosen to exempt itself from the new PA Consulting arrangements on inward investment. Clearly this is the approach that the Greater Cambridgeshire and Greater Peterborough LEP should have adopted.
Why is the Government failing to invest in the promotion of Cambridgeshire technology ?
