This document outlines the Scottish Government's strategic objectives for engagement with the US.
Our International Framework has four strategic objectives, which set the context for
our engagement with other countries. This strategy seeks to apply those objectives
to our relationship with the US, making the most of existing connections while
broadening the relationship in new and emerging areas of opportunity.
The strategic objectives apply across a broad range of sectors and issues. In our
engagement with the US, we will focus on a number of key areas identified in the
Scottish Government’s Trade & Investment Strategy. These include:
- Premium consumer products and services
- Digital, technology and high value manufacturing
- Skills, knowledge and innovation
- Healthcare and wellbeing
- Low carbon
A final, formatted version of this document will be made available early in 2017 to reflect the release in January of Scotland’s export statistics and other relevant information
