SCC COMMENT ON THE REFERENDUM DATE

[ 07-03-2013 ]

Commenting on the announcement that the referendum on Scottish independence will take place on Thursday 18 September 2014, Liz Cameron, Chief Executive of Scottish Chambers of Commerce, said:
 
“The announcement of the date for the referendum delivers greater clarity in terms of the timetable for the decision making process.  For business, even more clarity will be required over the next 18 months about the business environment and fostering economic growth in Scotland.  Our message to the politicians on both sides of the debate is that the Scottish economy must be at the centre of their considerations going forward.
 
“Scottish Chambers of Commerce are working with businesses across Scotland to identify the issues that require to be addressed by politicians across the political spectrum in key areas such as skills and the workforce, connectivity, support for Scotland’s businesses, our business operating environment and growing Scotland’s flagship industries.
 
“Whatever the outcome of this referendum, the key challenges facing Scottish businesses will remain.  The date is now set and the politicians need to bring forward their plans to support Scottish businesses through and beyond 2014.”
