Inclusive growth has been a feature of the Scottish Government’s Economic Strategy for the past five years, with governments across the globe agreeing that it can help tackle some of society’s most pressing challenges.
But what does it mean at a practical level?
Scotland Excel chose inclusive growth as the theme of their 2020 conference to look at growth priorities and what local organisations can do to support this agenda. In particular, the conference considered how public procurement can act as key driver of local economic growth.
Delegates had the opportunity to hear from expert speakers and participate in practice focused workshops. The conference brought together local economic development and procurement professionals to unpack strategies and plans, examine best practice and foster collaborative working.
The conference took place on Thursday 20th and Friday 21st February at the Radisson Blu Hotel, Glasgow.
