Every ambitious Scottish business needs to look beyond the UK. We may argue about political relationships, but the continent of Europe — with more than half a billion consumers — will always be our closest and most promising overseas market. What are Scotland’s special advantages and challenges, how do Scottish firms gain the access and impact they need to prosper in Europe — and what should government in Edinburgh and London be doing to help?
The discussion was tailored to business owners who employ over 50 staff.
Tickets were complimentary and breakfast was included.
