Ian Wall – Chair SCDI,  writes an open letter to the Prime Minister, Boris Johnson.  

Dear Prime Minister, 

The Scottish Council for Development and Industry (SCDI) is a membership organisation that works to build Scotland socially and economically. Our membership runs from agriculture to the water industry and includes SMEs, Universities and colleges, third sector and international businesses. 

We note that you are now taking direct responsibility for the negotiations with the EU and express our members very strong desire that you do everything in your power to agree a trade deal; the impact of a failure to secure an agreement will be substantially damaging to exports and imports, jobs and investment opportunities in both Scotland and the United Kingdom.  

In consequence we wish you every success in achieving the best economic outcome for all of us by concluding a trade deal. 

Yours sincerely, 


Ian Wall, Chair
