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 Statement of Intent from Government

At a time of unprecedented change, our commitment as a Government is to provide clear and decisive leadership to pursue economic growth and prosperity, ensuring that Scotland has the infrastructure, resources, skills and talent to respond quickly and seize the opportunities before us.

Government can't and shouldn't do everything. That is why we will work together with our all our partners in our endeavour to transform the economy.

This strategy represents a signal to private sector investors at home and abroad that Scotland is a country where Government and the business community are aligned in their thinking and where the policy landscape offers an attractive degree of certainty.

We pledge to listen and respond to calls that are made on government, but in return we ask business to join us in relentlessly pursuing the strategy's ambition for a fairer, wealthier and greener country. Together we can achieve our vision.
