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:
- Recovery & Jobs
- Economic Levers
The Council is chaired by Crawford Beveridge who published his First Annual Chair's Report on 28th March 2013.
