SNP Conference 2017 

“Economic myths and opportunities for an independent Scotland”

The question of Scottish Independence remains at the top of the political agenda. A question that is only made more pressing by the continued success of the SNP and the UK’s impending exit from the EU.

What opportunities exist for a Scotland and how could the country beat the critics to ensure economic success and prosperity outside of the union? What challenges are on the horizon, will Scotland be better able to tackle them as a sovereign nation or as part of the historic union?
