Executive Summary

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
