FSB: Moray Growth Deal must deliver for smaller businesses

Reference number: SPUR1107

Following the announcement today (11 July) that the Scottish and UK Governments will invest £65 million to the Moray economy through the Moray Growth Deal, the Federation of Small Businesses (FSB) has welcomed the boost.

Pearl Hamilton, Forres-based business owner and member of FSB’s National Council said: “This deal is a shot-in-the-arm for the Moray economy. At a time of low business confidence, this long term plan  provides much needed optimism.

“Nine in ten businesses in Moray are small so it is vital that this deal works closely with local operators. FSB looks forward to continuing to work with key partners to ensure the voice of small businesses is heard and that local operators get their fair share of contracts.

“Moray already has high numbers of women in business, and a burgeoning hospitality sector. We need to focus on building up this local economy.”
