Date lodged: 30 November 2016
To ask the Scottish Government how many staff are employed by Scottish Development International in the (a) Dublin, (b) Brussels, (c) Berlin and (d) London hub, and how many will be employed in future as a result of the First Minister's announcement to double staffing.
Answered by: Keith Brown 15 December 2016
There are currently no Scottish Development International staff employed in the Dublin, Brussels or Berlin hubs. When our London Hub opens in 2017, the eight people working for Scottish Development International in London will transfer there. SDI is currently considering how the additional staff resources can be most effectively deployed across Europe according to market opportunities.
