  • Date lodged: 23 January 2024
  • Current status: Answered by Angus Robertson on 24 January 2024


To ask the Scottish Government whether it will provide an update on its work to publish an action-oriented International Strategy setting out the outcomes that it will seek to achieve through international engagement up to May 2026.


Today, the Scottish Government has published its new International Strategy to guide our approach to international engagement and delivery to the end of the current parliamentary term. We have a successful record of delivering internationally since the beginning of devolution and want to continue to build on our strengths and seize global opportunities.

This new strategy looks across the wide range of Scottish Government responsibilities and priorities focusing on three key themes: (1) economy, trade and investment; (2) climate change, biodiversity and renewable energy; and (3) reputation, influence and relationships.

By being clear and precise in where we focus our efforts, the strategy will ensure that our international work continues to make a substantial, positive impact on the lives of people in Scotland and internationally.
