Scottish Labour

Date lodged: 26 September 2018

To ask the Scottish Government what assistance it provides to the oil and gas sector to export knowledge and services.

Answered by: Paul Wheelhouse 11 October 2018

The Scottish Government and our Enterprise and Skills Agencies work closely with Scottish oil and gas companies providing support, advice, and other assistance to help businesses access international markets, including: identification of market opportunities; market intelligence and strategy support; identification of business partners and finance options, support for companies participating in international trade events and facilitating connections and business relationships.

We remain committed to working with the supply chain to be a key driver of competitiveness in the north sea and internationally as demonstrated by the Oil and Gas Industry Leadership Group, which I co-chair with industry.
