SCDI Response: Scotland’s election results
Commenting on today’s result, Sara Thiam, Chief Executive, said:
“We congratulate the SNP on their victory, and new and returning MSPs of all parties on their success in the Scottish Parliament elections. The Electoral Commission and local authorities are to be congratulated on running a safe and smooth election during unprecedented public health challenges.
Scotland faces some headwinds in recovering from the pandemic and addressing its wider economic, social, and environmental challenges but there are also huge opportunities to be grasped. We look forward to working with the First Minister, the new Scottish Government and MSPs once they are all confirmed to create new jobs and prosperity, an economy that works for everyone and international leadership on clean growth.
SCDI’s Blueprint2030, our vision and strategy for Scotland’s economy, will set out a roadmap for the incoming government to seize these opportunities for the benefit of everyone in Scotland.”
