Council of Economic Advisers

The Council of Economic Advisers was first established in 2007 to advise Ministers on how to best position Scotland amongst the world’s most competitive economies.

The membership of the Council draws upon a range of knowledge and expertise and consists of leading figures from the private sector and academia, including two Nobel Laureates.

The Council has two formal meetings a year, but takes forward a considerable amount of engagement and work between meetings with efforts focussed on:

  • Improving the Competitiveness of the Scottish Economy; and
  • Tackling Inequality within Scotland.
