The report sets out how the economic policy levers that would be available with independence could be used to rebalance and reindustrialise the Scottish economy by developing a strategy focussed on strengthening manufacturing; promoting innovation; and encouraging international trade and investment.

Executive Summary

The Scottish Government set out in Scotland’s Future and Building Security and Creating Opportunity: Economic Policy Opportunities in an Independent Scotland how the full economic policy levers of independence could be used to create a more successful and fairer economy.

This paper builds on a key theme set out in both reports - the objective of rebalancing and reindustrialising the Scottish economy.

It sets out how future Scottish governments could use the greater range of policy levers available with independence to reindustrialise Scotland through a strategy focussed on strengthening manufacturing; promoting innovation; and encouraging international trade and investment.
