SCC comment on Scottish Green Freeports Announcement

Responding to the confirmation of the two successful Scottish Green Freeport bids by the Scottish and UK Government, Dr Liz Cameron CBE, Chief Executive, Scottish Chambers of Commerce, said:

“It is great news for Scottish Business that the UK and Scottish Governments have finally confirmed the sites of the two winning bids. It’s important now that both governments act swiftly to ensure that the successful sites are operational at the earliest opportunity, we are all competing to attract investment and trade.

“Whilst it will be very disappointing for those areas who were not successful, we would urge both governments to now consider, in partnership with the business community, other incentives and initiatives which could be developed from the innovation demonstrated by the other bidders.”
