Greens launch report on jobs and emerging industries

6th April 2014

Green Yes, the Scottish Green Party’s campaign for a Yes vote in the independence referendum, issued a report highlighting the choices an independent Scotland could take to create better jobs and grow emerging sectors of the economy.  

The paper, titled “Jobs-rich, Fair and Flourishing: An Economy For All” was launched by party leader and MSP, Patrick Harvie MSP during a visit to a games developer in Dundee.  

The paper says by taking full responsibility for the economy Scotland could pursue bold ideas such as the creation of local banks to support lending, establish a single regulator for micro-businesses to encourage entrepreneurs, and invest heavily in new technology to support growth in the creative sector. 

The Scotsman covers the launch of the report.
