Investment gain

The record results from Scottish Development International, which show an increase in both projects and jobs created or safeguarded in Scotland through inward investment, highlights the considerable benefits of our continued membership of the European Union (Business, 14 July).

This also reinforces the findings of the Ernst & Young Attractiveness Survey published earlier this year, which named Scotland as the most attractive place in the UK to invest outside London.

More than 2,000 companies already call Scotland home and many are coming here in part to access the advantages being part of the EU single market, the largest in the world, brings.

With nearly half of Scotland’s international exports going to the EU and more than 300,000 jobs dependent on such exports, it would be folly for us to remove ourselves from the EU and the many clear advantages membership brings.
