GlobalScot Briefing Session: Capital Investment to Drive Productivity (Timeslot 2)

29 February 2024, 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Following the announcement of Scottish Enterprise’s new strategy for economic transformation, our mission leads are keen to share this approach directly with the GlobalScot network. Join this session to hear from mission lead Elaine Morrison on Driving Capital Investment for Productivity.

Driving up levels of capital investment is critical to driving up productivity, leading to higher value jobs and improved standards of living. If Scottish productivity matched the OECD top quartile today, the Scottish economy would be £35 billion better off, with annual average wages growing by between £2,000 and £5,500 annually. We want to do more to attract new capital investment into Scotland and to work with our partners to support more companies to invest in their future growth potential.

GlobalScots and the network will play a key role in helping to deliver this strategy and this session will provide more detail about this mission, give you an opportunity to ask questions, comment and consider how you can help.

Please note there will be two briefing sessions for each of the three missions to accommodate different world time zones.
