Cities and their regions play a central role in driving economic growth.  The Scottish Government is committed to working individually and collectively with Scotland’s cities to optimise that growth for the benefit of the whole of Scotland.

The Agenda for Cities , “Scotland’s Cities: Delivering for Scotland”, was published in December 2011 by Scottish Government in collaboration with Scotland’s 6 city Local Authorities (Aberdeen, Dundee, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Inverness and Stirling). It established the Scottish Cities Alliance (SCA), a partnership of Scotland’s cities and the Scottish Government facilitated by the Scottish Council for Development in Industry (SCDI) and now welcomes Perth, Scotland’s newest city.
