Government Economic StrategyGovernment Economic Strategy

 

The Fife Economic Strategy is our local response to both the economic challenges and opportunities in Fife and to the Scottish Government’s ambitions for the Scottish economy as set out in the Government’s website.

 

On 12 September 2011 the Scottish Government published its new Government Economic Strategy.  This sets a refreshed perspective to deliver sustainable economic growth rather than a new direction.

 

The long term targets from the original Government Economic Strategy launched in 2007 (sustainable economic growth, productivity, participation, population, solidarity, cohesion and sustainability) have not changed.

 

The Strategy has six Strategic Priorities (including a new priority - 'Transition to a Low Economy')  which the Government believes will drive sustainable economic growth and develop a more resilient and adaptable economy.

 

In November 2010, the Scottish Government published its Low Carbon Economic Strategy. The Low Carbon Economic Strategy (LCES) is an integral part of the Government’s Economic Strategy to secure sustainable economic growth, and a key component of the broader approach to meet Scotland’s climate change targets and secure the transition to a low carbon economy in Scotland.
