Conclusion: looking ahead
The Scottish Government continues to be a keen supporter of the EU. Although we recognise that Brexit will unfortunately change radically how Scotland engages with the EU, Brexit will not change the EU's fundamental importance to Scotland nor our commitment to it. We will remain an active and positive partner who sees international collaboration as an essential driver for innovation and a healthy open economy.
EU regulations are of major interest to Scottish businesses exporting their products and services to a key trade partner, and to Scottish consumers who will benefit from the AI products and services made in the EU.
We hope that our response to the consultation will provide a useful perspective, and form the basis for continued dialogue and successful collaboration with the EU in this area, in accordance with the shared values that underpin the development of our AI Strategy and the EU policies on AI.
