In response to the Scottish Government's recent announcement of a package of measures designed to bolster business confidence and boost the economy, Andy Willox, The Federation of Small Businesses (FSBScottish policy convenor, said: “The current information gap presents a problem for firms trying to make medium-term business decisions. We support this move from the Scottish Government to combat this problem.”  

First Minister Nicola Sturgeon has outlined a new dedicated service to provide information and support to businesses affected by the EU referendum, a measure for which the FSB called in the weeks following the vote.

The Scottish Government has also announced a new round of infrastructure spending and a new business engagement forum.

Mr Willox said: “We need to squeeze every drop of value from this new spending – and that means ensuring that a fair share of these contracts, and associated sub-contracts, go to local firms.

On the new engagement forum, he added: “98 per cent of Scottish businesses are small. We look forward to making sure their interests are understood by political decision-makers during this important period.”
