USA PLAN 2010-2015

This plan outlines the Scottish Government's aspirations for Scotland's engagement with the USA.

Like our other country plans, the USA Plan fits within our International Framework and is aligned to the SG's purpose of increasing economic growth, as set out in the GES. The 3 key strategic objectives of the Plan are to:

- bring a sharper economic growth focus to the promotion of Scotland

- to create the conditions for people to live, learn, visit, work and invest in Scotland

- to manage Scotland's reputation as a distinctive global identity.

We stated that we would report annually on progress with the implementation of the actions set out in the plan. The annual reports, which have been compiled on the basis of extensive contributions from all public sector partners are now available for 2011 and 2012.
