Scotland's National Strategy for Economic Transformation: summary

This summary version of the strategy highlights the main priorities and actions we will take forward in the next decade to achieve our vision of a wellbeing economy.

The Conclusion

We all want Scotland to be successful.

Success means a strong economy where good, secure and well-paid jobs and growing businesses have driven a significant reduction in poverty and, in particular, child poverty.

We will be a nation of entrepreneurs and innovators, with resilient supply chains and competitive advantages in the new industries generated by technological change, scientific advance and the climate emergency.

And our society will be one in which everyone can participate in economic success, in every community and every region.

Transforming Scotland's economy is a national endeavour and government, the enterprise and skills agencies, business, trade unions, third sector, social enterprises and the people of Scotland all have a part to play. We can only succeed and achieve our goals if we pull together as one – a Team Scotland approach.

We want businesses to be exemplars, recognising and acting on their responsibilities to fair work and net zero. Taking action that protects and sustains our environment and natural world. Building a new mindset where all businesses see employees, communities and citizens as stakeholders as well as consumers. And where businesses are rooted in their communities.

As Government, we will do what we can with the powers we have to support business to achieve that. We ask you to do the same and invite you to work with us to build a stronger economy for Scotland.

So if you want to play a part, bring some ideas to the table, explore how we can do things differently to deliver faster and better, please contact setting out what you are interested in speaking to us about and we will be in touch to discuss opportunities further with you.
