The Purpose of the Scottish Government is to focus Government and public services on creating a more successful country, with opportunities for all of Scotland to flourish, through increasing sustainable economic growth.
The Government Economic Strategy (GES) sets out the measures that we are taking to deliver the Purpose, accelerate recovery, and develop a more resilient and adaptable economy.
By building a more dynamic and faster growing economy we will increase prosperity, be better placed to tackle Scotland's health and social challenges, and establish a fairer and more equal society. Sustainability is vital if we are to nurture our environment and ensure that future generations can enjoy a better quality of life.
The Purpose is supported by a set of ambitious targets which focus on the drivers of sustainable economic growth and ensure that growth is shared and sustainable. These targets form part of our outcome based National Performance Framework and set the direction and ambition of our Government Economic Strategy.
