Chapter 7 Economy, Fair Work and Culture

Portfolio Responsibilities

The Economy, Fair Work and Culture portfolio is at the heart of delivering the Scottish Government's purpose through sustainable and inclusive growth, whilst ensuring that Scotland's diverse and evolving culture and heritage thrives and is celebrated. It plays a crucial role in our response to and recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic. Our plans for economic recovery include our commitment to protect existing jobs, to support workers to upskill and reskill and to create good-quality jobs for the future. As our Programme for Government sets out we have adopted a national mission to create new jobs, good jobs and green jobs.

The portfolio is responsible for fair work, employability, enterprise, trade and inward investment and support to businesses, as well as for Scottish Enterprise, Accountant in Bankruptcy, Scottish National Investment Bank, Historic Environment Scotland, Cultural Collections and National Performing Centres.

The portfolio will help to build a strong, vibrant and diverse economy that promotes wellbeing, attracts investment and facilitates the transition to a net-zero economy. It will help tackle the global climate emergency, grow an inclusive economy, and face up to the challenges following Scotland's exit from the European Union, changing demographics and shifting global circumstances.

The portfolio also ensures our diverse and evolving cultural heritage thrives and is celebrated, and that our historic environment, world-class collections and performing companies are cared for and enjoyed by new and diverse audiences as well as future generations right across Scotland. It protects and provides access to our historic environment, promotes the delivery of high quality places and buildings to support communities contributing principally to the culture national outcomes. Our Major Events budget continues to support a strong and inspirational programme of events and festivals each year that generates business, creates jobs and boosts the economy whilst delivering benefits to communities across Scotland.
