Ukie launches policy manifesto for the games industry
Our Manifesto, which you can read above, sets out our priorities for how to accelerate growth in the UK games sector, now that we have tax relief in place and coding back on the curriculum. Created with input from Ukie’s members over the last six months, the Policy Manifesto calls for action on three headline areas of policy support:
Members and MPs enjoy our largest ever Westminster Reception
Last night, in partnership with Activision and Ubisoft, we hosted our largest ever Westminster Reception to announce our policy manifesto framework and celebrate the cultural and economic importance of the UK games sector. Over 200 policy makers, MPs, Peers, policy makers and industry figures from other creative sectors attended.
New Computing curriculum officially launches today
We want members' views on three new consultations that have been launched.
Addressing different aspects of the digital economy, these all address issues which Ukie has been working on for a long time. We will be responding to each in turn, and need member input to ensure we are accurately representing the views of the games industry.
We have opened a forum discussion on the three consultations, where you can give us your thoughts. Alternatively you can email Andy directly to discuss in private.
We want more input from members on what to say at the 2015 election
Ukie have been talking to our members, other games companies, and external stakeholders for the last few months, gathering ideas for our manifesto for the 2015 general election. We want more input on what we are planning to say.
