Global Connections Survey

The Global Connections Survey (GCS) is an annual survey run by the Scottish Government which helps us to measure the value and destination of Scottish goods and services and the depth of international involvement of businesses in Scotland.

If your business has been invited to take part in the Global Connections Survey, you can access this at the Scottish Exchange of Data.
