Support Scottish business

The pandemic has been a horrible situation in so many different ways, including for business and the economy.

As we start to ease out lockdown and the Government manages that process, more and more businesses are looking to get back up and running. One way that the Scottish Government could help small businesses is to look at their procurement systems and see if immediate changes could be made to support more local businesses.

Many Government contracts have been awarded to large multi-nationals, with smaller indigenous Scottish businesses excluded. Now would be a good time to look for ways to award more work to local business to support them which would in turn lead to more job creation and improvements to the local and national economies.

Getting back to business

We are in the early phases of getting back to a form of normality. It is important to recognise that respective Governments have been making difficult decisions at every stage with the important objective of keeping us all as safe as possible.

As we slowly ease from lockdown, it is clear that this will, quite rightly, be based on scientific and health advice. However, whilst we can wait for Government to ease restrictions, we can also help influence the process. Government is willing to listen to business. They welcome evidence and research that advocates a case for sectors, businesses or organisations to open up.

We can assist you in building and advocating your case to get your business or sector moving. Contact us to discuss your specific requirements.
