Wealthier and Fairer Scotland

The Government takes pride in Scotland's strong, fair and inclusive national identity. Its core aim is to help businesses and people increase their wealth and allow more people to share fairly in that wealth. The impact of a changing climate means that future growth must be achieved in a responsible and sustainable way.

To support this, the Government is determined to create high quality efficient public services that are responsive to local people's needs.
