Scotland is a proud European nation. We have benefitted from being part of the European Union (EU) for more than 40 years.
The UK’s departure from this union undoubtedly changed the way that Scotland engages with the EU, but it will not change the EU’s importance to Scotland, nor our commitment to it. We will continue to collaborate across a wide range of issues on the EU’s agenda, reflecting our shared values and goals.
- working to protect the interests of EU and EEA citizens in Scotland
- using our Innovation and Investment Hubs to support trade, investment, innovation and intergovernmental relations
- promoting the aims and objectives of our updated Nordic Baltic Policy Statement
