Scotland: building opportunities
CMS Scotland worked with a number of key industry leaders and surveyed over 100 executives of four of Scotland’s most important future industry sectors to create our Thought Leadership report Scotland: Building opportunities.
This report explores a number of Scotland’s key sectors – renewable energy, life sciences, food and drink and technology. A key element of our research was interviewing leading figures from each sector to understand how they are responding to an uncertain economic climate and cautious investors. We gain a lot of valuable insight from these interviews and contrast these sectoral perspectives with the overall economic picture.
