Jersey Targets Digital Industry Growth

by Jason Gorringe,, London

12 July 2012

The Jersey government has welcomed the formation of Digital Jersey Limited, a new independent organization set up to represent and promote the island as a centre for digital businesses in areas such as e-commerce, information and communications technology services and data hosting.

Digital Jersey will work with the government and the private sector to aid understanding of the digital economy and the opportunities it could open up for Jersey in this area. It will work on developing relevant education and skills, promoting legislative guidance and providing strategic direction. Although initially funded by government, Digital Jersey will remain wholly independent and will seek external sources of funding in the future.

Governance of Digital Jersey will be through an independent board, with candidates to fill management roles now being sought.

The Minister for Economic Development, Senator Alan Maclean, commented: “I am very pleased that the recruitment of the Chair for Digital Jersey is about to commence. Recruitment for the CEO will begin shortly, and the remainder of the Board will be put in place as quickly as possible."

“We are looking for progressive, dynamic people with expertise and interest in the digital industry who will contribute to the development of an effective strategy for the growth of this whole sector in Jersey,” Maclean added.
