Complaint description
Four important but positive stories on Scottish economy missed, three in one day and one other a few days beforehand. 1. Scottish growth ‘outpacing UK as a whole’ on the BBC Scotland website on 11th June, but not broadcast to TV audience: ‘Research by Royal Bank of Scotland indicates the Scottish economy is growing faster than the UK as a whole.’ https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-scotland-scotland-business-44436783 2. Scottish growth three times UK level’ from the Fraser of Allander Institute, on June 11th: ‘Our model suggests that GVA growth in 2018 Q1 was 0.29%, or at an annual rate 1.18% and GVA growth in 2018 Q2 is 0.29%, or at an annual rate 1.16%. By way of comparison, UK GDP growth in Q1 was only 0.1%.’ https://fraserofallander.org/scottish-economy/latest-nowcasts-of-the-scottish-economy/ When the news is less good, BBC Scotland, rarely miss Fraser of Allander reports. At the end of March 2018, they reported happily on the SNP government’s strategies: ‘Clutter’ of strategies stifling Scotland’s growth, say economists https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-scotland-scotland-politics-43559165 3. ‘Foreign Direct Investment in Scotland at ‘unprecedented’ levels Scotland attracted a new record of Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) for the third year in a row in 2017 and set a new 10-year high, https://www.insider.co.uk/news/ey-foreign-direct-investment-scotland-12669006 4. 8% of the population, nearly 9% of the exports but only 5.25% of the imports https://www.uktradeinfo.com/Statistics/RTS/Pages/default.aspx
