The Digital Village Year 2000 Statement
| date: 16 Nov 1998
We have assessed all systems that are important to our trading relationships and we are confident of our ability to continue trading successfully before during and after Year 2000.
We have assessed the ways in which we depend on our suppliers and we have not found any dependencies that will prevent us from continuing to trade successfully after 31st December 1999. However, we are not in a position to control the Year 2000 compliance of our suppliers and cannot account for any deficiencies which may arise as a result of non-compliance within any supplier product or system.
