THE chief executive of the Scottish Chambers of Commerce has been re-appointed as the Scottish Business representative to advise the UK Government on strategic trade policy issues, including future trade agreements.

Liz Cameron, also director of the chambers, said: “Exporting and international trade is a priority for Scottish businesses which will underpin Scotland’s economic growth for decades to come.

Working closely and listening to the needs of business will give the UK Government the intelligence it needs to secure the best trade deals.

Ms Cameron also said: “Scottish Chambers of Commerce and our members stand ready to champion Scotland’s world-leading, high quality products and services and strike new trade deals with partners across the world.”
