Nicola Sturgeon message
Scotland’s First Minster Nicola Sturgeon sent a personal video message of support ahead of our inaugural Building Bridges conference in Edinburgh.
The conference – which ran from 17 till 18 March – found new ways for Scotland to connect with the 50 million or so people around the world linked to us by heritage or by a strong affiinity to our country. It involved delegates from Africa, the Americas, Europe, the Middle East and Asia.
“Internationalisation, boosting exports is key to growing our economy,” the First Minister said. “It’s at the heart of Scotland’s economic strategy. The work that you all do is therefore key to helping us meet that ambition. So I wish you well.”
