We are making good progress on our commitment to a City Deal for every city region in Scotland, and I hope to have some good news very soon on the Edinburgh City Deal.

We have opened negotiations on Stirling and Clackmannanshire, and we are working with the Tay Cities partners to develop the Deal.

We are also driving forward with the innovative, cross-border Borderlands Deal, which will see transformative investment into the local economies along the Border.
