Citizens, businesses, and organisations across South East Scotland have helped shape a major consultation on the region’s economic future.
Council Leader Adam McVey comments on a press release issued today by the Edinburgh and South East Scotland City Region Deal on a prosperity plan agreed for the region.
Edinburgh and South East Scotland is a central driver of the Scottish economy. It is essential that we use our economic success to deliver on our policies for fair work, provide opportunities to all citizens and communities and support people’s well-being. The Regional Prosperity Framework has been developed with input from public, private and third sector organisations and local communities and sets out our collective ambition to combine economic and social success with protecting the planet. We will work together as a region to meet that ambition.
