The European Union's Strategic Agenda 2020-2024: Scotland's Perspective

Document setting out how Scotland sees the EU's priorities for the period ahead and explaining why these are of vital importance to Scotland and how Scotland can contribute to their delivery.


The Scottish Government continues to be a keen supporter of the European Union.

We will remain an active and positive partner of the EU whatever the outcome of the EU/UK negotiations on the future relationship – and either under the current UK constitutional arrangements or as an independent country.

We will lend our support in particular to measures which embody progressive, democratic values; which address the challenges presented by the global climate emergency; which promote a fairer deal for all and which help create smarter economies, fit for the 21st century.

All of these challenges require collaborative, internationalist solutions and we look forward to working closely with all those who share these values and ambitions.
