Responding to the Government's immigration proposals, Dr Jo Twist OBE, CEO of Ukie, said:
'The UK Games Industry has hugely benefitted from being able to attract the brightest and the best international talent.
Today’s announcement on a forthcoming points based immigration system provides ambitious UK businesses with some much needed clarity on future arrangements.
It is encouraging to see the Government taking on board recommendations to lower the minimum salary threshold and removing the resident labour test.
There remain, however, significant questions over process, additional burden to business and eligibility requirements.
Getting answers on these points will help set the course of our fast moving, innovative creative sector and we look forward to hearing more in due course.'
