The South East region is the economic powerhouse of the UK economy and represents a huge digital economic opportunity. However, the region has challenges to overcome that the public and private sectors need to come together to resolve. Working with our partners Whiston Solutions Ltd and Digital Alchemist I look forward to hearing more about the digital agenda in the South East over the coming years.
