SCC in the Herald – 25th July 2024

Featured in today’s edition of The Herald Scotland, ahead of the General Election, Dr Liz Cameron CBE, Chief Executive, Scottish Chambers of Commerce commented:

“Quite simply, without prioritising growth, we can’t create much-needed jobs and stimulate our struggling economy. Whoever is in power, they need to take urgent action within the first 100 days to help all businesses, small and large.

“The SCC has called on all the main political parties in the UK General Election to prioritise economic growth and job creation by establishing a partnership between business and government to oversee an ambitious programme of pro-enterprise and pro-growth policies.

“The SCC has published a detailed 15-point action plan for the next UK Government to deliver pro-growth policies to turbo-charge investment, innovation, and job creation. It’s a comprehensive manifesto with constructive input from across all our business sectors and valuable insight from Scottish and UK business leaders.”
