The UK economy could have been £63bn better off if consumers and businesses had better online skills and a bigger digital presence.
That is according to a report out this morning, which also claims that 16m people in the UK do not have basic online skills, and only one third of small and medium-sized businesses have an online presence.
The report is from consultants Booz and Company in conjunction with Go On UK, the charity chaired by UK Digital Champion, Martha Lane Fox.
Speaking to Today business presenter Simon Jack, Ms Lane Fox explained: "If we focus on skills and services as much as we've focused on other things in the economy then there is the opportunity to add real growth to our GDP."
