ECC Policy Update

Posted: 21st October 2021

We are continuing engagement through the Scottish Chambers of Commerce and British Chambers of Commerce on national and UK-wide issues. Some of the issues we’ve been focusing on this quarter have included:

  • The relaxation of Covid rules, and working with Scottish Government on new guidance to help businesses navigate the sometimes complex post-Covid landscape
  • The proposals around Green Ports and Free Ports
  • Issues around access to labour and supply chain issues, which are affecting many of our members
  • Working with the UK Government to try and shape the levelling-up agenda
  • In the run up to the UK hosting of COP26 in Glasgow, we have been working closely with BCC and SCC on preparations for COP, as well as more broadly on the sustainability agenda. This includes participating in British Chambers Climate Challenge group.
  • We have also been feeding into preparations around the upcoming UK Budget
