SCOTTISH CHAMBERS OF COMMERCE WELCOME ENTERPRISE AREAS

[ 17-01-2012 ]

The Scottish Chambers of Commerce have welcomed today’s announcement by John Swinney that the Scottish Government is creating four Enterprise Areas, over 14 sites across Scotland.  Scottish Chambers of Commerce Chief Executive Liz Cameron commented: 

 
“Scottish Chambers of Commerce welcome the Scottish Government’s sectoral approach to creating Scotland’s Enterprise Areas, which has enabled them to designate 14 sites focussing on key areas of the Scottish economy.
 
 
 
“We note that the detail of how the Enterprise Areas will operate is still being worked out.  It is crucial that business is a partner in this.  There is an opportunity here for the Scottish Government to build on the goodwill and expertise of the private sector in Scotland, to ensure that even in the current difficult economic climate, enterprise Areas are a successful and sustainable initiative. 
 
“Scottish Chambers of Commerce look forward to the Scottish Government and the Enterprise Agencies using – as we have offered – the significant Chamber of Commerce expertise and resource in place at local level, to optimise business engagement in the Enterprise Area initiative going forward.”
