Clydesdale’s MSP Aileen Campbell has welcomed the latest independent publication which shows Scotland’s economy is staving off the worst of the recession caused by the UK Government’s austerity politics.

The Grant Thornton Business Confidence Monitor states:

"Confidence among Scottish firms is higher this quarter than in any other part of the UK.

"This continues an upward trend which began at the end of 2011, and optimism in Scotland now stands at its highest level since Q3 2011."

In response Aileen said:

"These numbers are really welcome, locally as well as nationally.

"It is good news that confidence is growing with Scotland’s businesses. The difficulties imposed by the Westminster Government’s austerity cuts are as real as they are harsh, but Scotland’s and Clydesdale’s resilience remains.

"Clydesdale has huge potential going forward; not only in terms of tourism, but also with the new and established small and medium sized businesses we have in the area.

"I was hugely impressed at the recent meeting of the relaunched Lanark Business Group by their ambition and sense of purpose. It’s clear Clydesdale is open for business.

"The Confidence Monitor confirms that Scotland continues to be one of the most attractive places in the UK to do business and the debate over independence is having no effect on our economy.

"Scotland has the talent, the natural resources and the perfect location to build a strong and prosperous economy - yet we lack many of the economic levers of power to realise our full potential. The anti-independence parties need to tell the people of Scotland why when our parliament can have control of health and education, they do not believe we have the ability to control the powers that can help make our economy flourish and defend us against the worst of the UK’s policies."
