Strategic review of Irish-Scottish relations

Ireland and Scotland have close political, economic, community and cultural ties, and both the Government of Ireland and the Scottish Government are committed to deepening Irish-Scottish cooperation. 

The Scotland-Ireland Bilateral Review is a joint strategic review of the relationship, aimed at consolidating existing ties in a new international environment and unlocking the relationship’s further potential.
