Date lodged: 6 November 2017
To ask the Scottish Government whether it will provide a summary of the impact, in terms of new investment to Scotland, of the Cabinet Secretary for Economy, Jobs and Fair Work’s visit to Canada and the United States.
Answered by: Keith Brown 14 November 2017
Ministerial visits overseas allow the Scottish Government to build relationships that attract investment into Scotland and help Scottish businesses pursue international growth opportunities which in turn contribute to Scotland’s international success and economic growth. My visit to Canada and the United States focused on promoting trade and investment across the public and private sector providing reassurance to businesses across North America that Scotland is open for business.
