SCOTTISH BUSINESSES NEED THE BEST FROM OUR GOVERNMENTS

[ 19-09-2014 ]

Commenting on the ‘No’ vote in the referendum on Scottish independence, Liz Cameron, Chief Executive of Scottish Chambers of Commerce, said:

 

“Scotland has decided that the way forward is to remain as part of the United Kingdom. This decision must be respected by all. 

 

“We are now on a path which will provide additional devolved powers to the Scottish Parliament.   We need clarity and detail on what specific powers will be transferred, and ensure these are delivered within the promised timescale.

 

“This historical decision will bring change, not only to Scotland, but throughout the United Kingdom.  The campaigns have divided opinion.  It is now time for us to come together and grasp the opportunities which dynamic change can stimulate and energise. Our direction of travel has been decided.  The Scottish business community will work with our politicians at Holyrood and Westminster to influence and deliver the best deal for Scottish business.

 

“The referendum campaigns placed Scotland’s economy at the top of the political agenda.  Now we must keep it there.  As we approach elections to the UK Parliament in 2015 and the Scottish Parliament in 2016, we have a great opportunity to ensure that Scotland’s economic potential is enhanced to take forward a new business vision, one which places Scotland on the world stage and continues to unlock our collective entrepreneurial spirit as part of a United Kingdom.”
