Action plan published to identify new markets and opportunities for tech sector
A plan to help the technology sector reach new international markets has been published.
Produced in partnership with industry experts, the Export Plan for Scotland’s Technology Sector identifies opportunities to build on strengths in key areas, including digital technologies and advanced manufacturing.
Following the publication of the National Strategy for Economic Transformation, this action plan aims to encourage better collaboration between industry, the public sector and the Scottish Government to unlock economic opportunities and better promote tech businesses internationally.
The Trading Nation strategy included a commitment to create a sector export plan for the technology sector.
In 2021, there were 10,395 VAT/PAYE registered businesses in the technology sector, which equated to 5.8% of the VAT/PAYE registered businesses in Scotland’s private sector. These businesses provide 83,610 jobs and have a total turnover of £21.6 billion.
