FSB: Jobs figures show we must put Scottish local economies top PDF Print E-mail
Wednesday, 18 January 2017
Official statistics published today show that Scotland’s GDP grew 0.2% in the third quarter of 2016. In addition, employment fell while unemployment rose between September and November of last year. 

Andy Willox, FSB’s Scottish policy convenor, said: “Scottish smaller business confidence was on the slide throughout 2016, so today’s mediocre economic statistics are unwelcome if not surprising.

“2017 must be the year when we get Scotland’s economy moving again. New and growing firms can help to deliver this gear shift.

“We’re looking for governments in Edinburgh and London to think about the impact on local economies of every decision they make. When Scottish firms are reassured that their interests are at the top of the agenda, we’re sure that they’ll help to deliver the jobs and growth the country needs.”
