SCDI congratulates Humza Yousaf

Welcoming the appointment of Humza Yousaf as the new leader of the Scottish National Party, Sara Thiam, SCDI CEO said:

“We congratulate Humza Yousaf MSP on his appointment as Scotland’s next First Minister. SCDI has a long history of working constructively with Scotland’s First Minister and the Scottish Government as a critical friend in support of the needs and wishes of our diverse membership of industry and civic society.

We will welcome the new First Minister’s focus on the economy. Our goal as an organisation is to support a prosperous future Scotland, and one which is the home of purposeful business. As our members are facing the ongoing challenges of higher costs of business and economic uncertainty, we encourage the new First Minister to focus on the delivery of Scotland’s economic strategy, to identify and bring forth new measures to incentivise investment in innovation and productivity and to limit the regulatory burden imposed on businesses as they seek to rebuild their businesses.”
