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 Action

This strategy is intentionally focused on a small number of priorities; it does not seek to do everything. It focuses on the programmes with the greatest potential to shift the economic dial and marks a shift in our approach to delivery. New initiatives identified in this strategy do not mean that we are abandoning actions or initiatives that have proven to work. We will "double down" on the things that are shown to work.

We have identified five key bold policy programmes of action that will drive improvements in Scotland's economy. They have been carefully chosen, based on the evidence[1], and are interconnected, mutually reinforcing and should not be seen in isolation. A sixth programme of action focuses on delivery and accountability, including detailed delivery plans.

The sixth programme of action, a new culture of delivery, is at the centre of this circle, to indicate that delivery is at the heart of this strategy.
