SCDI Annual Review 2017 – 2018

Extract from Chair’s Message:

Over the past 12 months, the Board and SCDI team have begun to successfully implement elements of a new strategic direction, amidst anexternal environment full of uncertainty. I am proud of the team for continuing to deliver the high quality offering that Members and stakeholders have come to expect.

Throughout the year, SCDI’s activities in Policy have focused on our core purpose of driving and influencing sustainable inclusive economic growth. The team has defined, with the support of the SCDI Policy Committee and Board, six key policy themes that will drive the competitiveness of the Scottish economy and reduce the productivity gap, to deliver further sustainable inclusive economic growth.

These themes are:
• Infrastructure
• Innovation
• Investment
• Place
• Skills
• Trade and International
