Call for views: Advisory Group on Economic Recovery

The Advisory Group on Economic Recovery has been established by the Scottish Government to provide independent expert advice on supporting the sectors and regions of Scotland's economy to recover from the impact of Covid-19.

This call for views is an opportunity to shape the group's recommendations by contributing your views on how the Scottish Government should approach supporting Scotland's economic recovery.

The timescale is short, however, as Scottish Ministers require that the Advisory Group's recommendations are delivered by the end of June. To allow sufficient time for all views shared to be fully considered ahead of this deadline, this survey will close on Sunday, May 31.
