Scotland on the world stage

In 2014 Scotland secured its third best year on record for Foreign Direct Investment:

  • 80 projects in 2014, with scientific research, financial services and manufacturing flying the flag
  • 2014 was Scotland’s most successful year attracting investments from the US, but it needs a higher profile in Asia
  • Investor perception study confirms Scotland’s brand boosted globally.

In an uncertain world, Scotland continues to punch above its weight in securing global FDI. It's challenge now is to build further on achievements to date, and tackle areas where it can do better.

This study gives solid ground for confidence it can succeed on both counts.
