CuppaCo's blueprint for e-Business expansion


The blueprint for economic growth in the Island over the next six years suggests e-Business will be our fastest-growing sector.

The success of e-gaming is well known: but Economic Development minister John Shimmin has a much broader e-commerce sector in mind.

A week ago he launched Vision 2020 - a long-term initiative to ensure nothing less than the Isle of Man's future prosperity.

Financial services are expected to remain a lynchpin in the Manx economy.

But Mr Shimmin has boldly predicted e-Business will be the largest source of growth, generating hundreds of new jobs. 

Can the sector deliver on that confident aspiration - designed to expand the economy by up to four per cent by 2020?
