Guernsey will focus on attracting digital firms next year, according to a new report from the Commerce and Employment Department on inward investment efforts in 2015.
Since the introduction of the Economic Development Framework in February 2014, Guernsey has launched strategies for the development of the finance sector, the retail sector, and the visitor economy. It has also launched two initiatives to encourage inward investment: the Locate Guernsey Project and the Digital Greenhouse.
The Department intends to use 2016 to focus on attracting digital firms, according to the newly released December 2015 update to the Economic Development Framework.
Guernsey's Commerce & Employment Minister, Kevin Stewart, said: "We have achieved notable successes in the short time since the Framework has been published, and we are excited that projects such as the Digital Greenhouse and Locate Guernsey are already starting to deliver very tangible benefits for Guernsey. In 2016 we will continue to introduce and test the implementation of initiatives under the four key objectives of the Economic Development Framework, both with the business community and the general public, in order to continue to drive the development of the economy in the most joined-up way possible."
