They key to social mobility is an economy that works for everyone. The Office of the Secretary of State for Scotland works with a range of stakeholders, including the Scottish Government, the Scottish Parliament, and with departments across Whitehall, in delivering UK Government policies that ensure we build that economy.

Whether that’s by supporting economic growth and investment in Scottish industries through City and Region Deals, delivering a modern Industrial Strategy, supporting Scotland’s pivotal oil and gas and renewables sectors, boosting international trade through the GREAT Britain campaign, or by investing in superfast broadband in Scotland. The actions taken by the office in each of the last seven years are set out in its annual reports.
