Following the announcement from the First Minister today, Adrian Watson, chief executive of Aberdeen Inspired said: “There is already growing concern around the latest economic indicators for the city and North-east showing a great adverse effect to our businesses, and with that jobs, than elsewhere. “

“With that in mind, we are naturally disappointed for so many of our businesses, but respect Scottish Government's cautious approach to lifting the local restrictions and hope that we will see easing in the coming week. The announcement of a £1 million support fund for affected businesses in Aberdeen is welcomed, but I think we all understand that this will only provide limited respite, at best, for many who face an uncertain future.”
