S5W-14598: Gordon Lindhurst (Lothian)

Scottish Conservative and Unionist Party

Date lodged: 9 February 2018

To ask the Scottish Government what plans it has to develop public sector business support, such as fostering greater peer-to-peer business mentoring and development.

Answered by: Keith Brown 28 February 2018

The Scottish Government is delivering a ‘public sector business support’ network that is responsive to and driven by the real needs of our business community. In June 2017 we published Phase 2 of the Enterprise & Skills Review and we are, by working with and through partners, implementing its recommendations.

We recognise and value the impact of peer-to-peer support and, beyond the systemic development of the public enterprise network, we continue to work with private and third sector partners to better enable and facilitate the economic potential of all of Scotland’s peoples.
