With excellent natural resources, a solid skills base, and an established supply chain of companies working in the energy sector, it is understandable that more and more businesses are interested in basing some or all of their operations in the Highlands and Islands of Scotland.

The IT infrastructure, transport options and quality of life are also aspects which play a part in making it possible and desirable to do business here.

Highlands and Islands Enterprise (HIE) and Scottish Development International (SDI) work in partnership to support both existing and inward investor businesses.

HIE can work with businesses and organisations already in the Highlands and Islands to ensure they can realise the commercial opportunities in this region. SDI, on the other hand, delivers service and support to international companies wishing to develop a cost-effective base in Scotland for serving customers world-wide

If you would like to know more about working with HIE in the Highlands and Islands region please contact HIE's International Trade and Investment team:
