The region’s natural assets, ambition, skills base and cultural background provide a range of opportunities to develop a vibrant sectoral economy. Capitalising on this asset base to create opportunities for growth and prosperity will help tackle inequalities and build more competitive, resilient economy.
We focus our sectoral efforts on the sectors identified in Scotland's Economic Strategy:
We provide sectoral suppor through a range of interventions, principally: direct support to businesses and social enterprises, specialist programmes and interventions to create the conditions for strong sectoral growth, and influencing sectoral and public policy within Scotland, the UK and Europe.
An essential component of our sectoral development is the close working relationship we have with key partners including the Scottish Government, Scottish Enterprise, Scottish Development International, VisitScotland, Skills Development Scotland, Scottish Funding Council, Creative Scotland, industry leadership groups, local authorities
and the NHS.
