The Executive’s objective for all of Scotland is sustainable improvement in economic performance. A Smart, Successful Scotland sets out strategic direction to the Enterprise Networks and focuses on three key challenges for raising productivity: growing businesses, global connections and learning and skills.

In following this direction, Scottish Enterprise Borders takes account of local needs and opportunities. Provision of information on programmes and projects is an operational matter for Scottish Enterprise. The Borders Local Economic Forum, of which Scottish Enterprise Borders is a member, provides a mechanism for co-ordinated delivery of local economic development activities.
