Scottish Government pushes on past 200 initiatives to counter Tory Brexit damage

In May this year, I was able to report:

‘More than 200 engagements between Scottish Government ministers and European governments, institutions and organisations have taken place since the start of 2017. The ‘strong desire’ to connect with Scotland and listen to our views signals that the EU continues to see Scotland as an important partner – according to External Affairs Secretary Fiona Hyslop. In just 16 months, Scottish Government ministers have initiated or accepted more than 200 meetings and visits with European partners, which on average means a European engagement has taken place at least three times per week.’

Getting on with the day job, as the Scottish Tories do SFA, we read in the Scottish Business News Network, yesterday:

‘Scotland’s economic ties with Canada will be strengthened through the launch of a new Scottish Government office in Ottawa next month. The new Canada office will encourage investment between Canadian and Scottish businesses and organisations and promote Scotland as a place to work, study and visit along with encouraging collaboration between business, research, education and cultural institutions. Canada has consistently been a top 20 export partner for Scotland, with exports in 2016 totalling £610 million. It is also one of Scotland’s biggest inward investors, with around 3,650 jobs provided by 45 Canadian companies in Scotland.’
