Scotland's leading sectors

Quality defines so many of Scotland’s sectors. Scottish produce – from salmon to whisky – is savoured in homes and restaurants worldwide. Many of our higher education institutions now run successful overseas operations. And Scotland’s legendary beauty, rich heritage and exciting events continue to attract millions of tourists every year.

Chemicals exports and life sciences research are thriving, and vast renewable energy resources sit alongside four decades of oil and gas expertise. We turn our creativity to everything from satellite and software engineering to TV and textiles production. Scotland has long been a vital financial centre and today is a growing hub for global business services.


We can help your business to build trade links with Scotland, whatever your industry sector. Impartial advice from our trade advisers can help you to understand business practices in Scotland and make the most of the opportunities and support available here.
