8. Conclusion

Transforming Scotland's economy is a national endeavour. As a consequence of the 6 programmes, 18 projects and 77 actions set out in this strategy, we will have achieved our vision of building a wellbeing economy.

Our vision for 2032 is to create a wellbeing economy: a society that is thriving across economic, social and environmental dimensions, one that delivers prosperity for all Scotland's people and places.

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 our economic success, in every community and in every region.

Transforming Scotland's economy is a national endeavour and government, the enterprise and skills agencies, business, trade unions, third sector, local government, 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.

This strategy marks a shift in our approach to delivery and it is the ruthless focus on delivery set out in this strategy that will unlock economic transformation and drive the economic opportunities across Scotland.
