Whether you’re looking to invest, relocate, partner or expand in Scotland, the USA retains its position as the largest source of FDI projects for the Scottish economy, accounting for 41% of all investment projects into Scotland in 2012. US-owned companies also account for over 40% of Scottish business R&D expenditure.
Over the past six years, we have secured over 13,500 jobs from US companies with a combined investment of over £1 billion.
Scotland, with its talent, research excellence and built and natural assets, is already a very attractive location for US corporations to locate. With the US-EU Transatlantic Trade & Investment Partnership (TTIP) this will be further enhanced, in particular as a base to access the European market.
We can provide international companies with the latest information on Scotland’s economy and our world-leading products and technologies. We can also help facilitate introductions with leading Scottish companies in their sector.
We also provide ongoing support to American companies already operating in Scotland.
