The Scottish Government published a Trading Nation: A plan for Growing Scottish exports on 1 May 2019. The plan aims to increase the value of exports from 20% to 25% of Scotland’s GDP over the next 10 years. This could add around 3.5 billion GBP to GDP and create 17,500 more jobs. A Trading Nation was developed using data driven analysis and market intelligence to identify the priority sectors, markets and types of businesses that are most likely to drive growth in exports. The end goal of the USA Export Plan is to produce an export focused report that seeks to identify the US states that offer the best match and opportunity for Scottish export strengths and our ambitions as set out in A Trading Nation and the National Strategy for Economic Transformation.
