PICTFOR 2014: Review
This past year has seen PICTFOR firmly establish itself as the lead All Party Parliamentary Group on technology within the Houses of Parliament. With the UK technology sector forecast to contribute 12.4% of GDP to the economy by 2016, contributing some £225bn overall, PICTFOR has never been more relevant for industry and Parliament. The depth and breadth of our agenda this year has spanned some 14 events; from discussing the UK membership of the EU and whether or not it benefits UK technology companies, to the ever-popular MP Twitter Awards.
The PICTFOR team aims to deliver a highly relevant, and tailored, programme of policy discussions for our industry and parliamentary membership.
As 2014 draws to a close, Secretariat has drawn up a quick overview of the year that was – and we hope you can join us again in the vital general election year of 2015!
