Businesses and social enterprises in the Highlands and Islands are ambitious, both for their individual enterprise and for the growth of the region as a whole. Greater economic prosperity will be delivered through private sector led investments which create jobs and wealth.
The Government Economic Strategy (GES) identifies seven sectors as offering particular opportunities for growth due to existing comparative advantages or through potential to capitalise on Scotland's unique natural assets.
