Office of the Chief Economist

This report analyses the barriers businesses in the South of Scotland face to job growth and the types of finance that could address local needs. We were commissioned by the Scottish Government’s Office of the Chief Economist, in partnership with The Good Economy, to look at the barrier’s businesses in the South of Scotland face to job growth and the types of finance and investment that could address local business needs. We completed desk-based research into availability of finance in the region, conducted face-to-face interviews with local businesses, drafted sections of the report, and reviewed the final report.

The research provided Scottish Government and the South of Scotland Enterprise Partnership with policy recommendations and practical guidance on business-led inclusive job growth for the South of Scotland Enterprise – the new economic and community development agency for the region.
