To ask the Scottish Government, further to the announcement in its Programme for Government, when the six export partnership pilots will be established; how the locations will be decided; what the budget will be for each pilot, and how many staff each will employ.
Answered by: Keith Brown 20 September 2017
We are working closely with the Scottish Chambers of Commerce to deliver up to six local/regional export partnerships. Together with the Scottish Chambers of Commerce and Scottish Development International we are currently considering proposals from a number of Chambers across a wide range of geographical areas. Further details will be announced as soon as possible.
