The Scottish Economic Recovery Plan: Update February 2011

This report was published in February 2011.

“The Government Economic Strategy, launched in 2007, established a bold vision for the future of Scotland, where the focus of Government and public services was centred on increasing sustainable economic growth. This update to the Economic Recovery Plan meets our commitment to maintain a flexible programme of economic support, designed to meet Scotland’s needs at each stage of the economic cycle.

Scotland’s economy has now emerged from a recession that was shorter and shallower than many other European countries – testament in part to the impact of the actions implemented through the Economic Recovery Plan. As we enter a new period of public expenditure pressures, the programme outlined in this updated Plan will strengthen the underlying resilience of the Scottish economy and secure its long-term growth by investing in innovation and industries of the future (Chapter 3); supporting jobs and our communities (Chapter 4); and strengthening education and skills (Chapter 5).”
