Scotland’s Economic Strategy (March 2015) sets out an overarching framework for a more competitive and a fairer Scotland and identifies four broad priority areas where the Scottish Government's actions will be targeted to make a difference. These four areas are characterised by:-
an economy where growth is underpinned by long-term sustainable investment in people, infrastructure and assets;
an economy where growth is based on innovation, change and openness to new ways of doing things;
a society that promotes inclusive growth and creates opportunity through a fair and inclusive jobs market and regional cohesion to provide economic opportunities across all of Scotland; and
a country with an international outlook and focus, open to trade, migration and new ideas.
