*S2M-1695 Mr Jim Wallace: Growing Scotland’s Economy - Building on Progress—That the Parliament welcomes the publication of the Scottish Executive’s response to the issues raised at the Business in the Parliament Conference 2004; welcomes the input of the business community into the current revision of A Smart, Successful Scotland and welcomes this opportunity for members to influence that revision; notes the broad consensus in support of the Executive’s recently published framework for economic development in Scotland for addressing Scotland’s historically low rate of economic growth by working to deliver improved productivity, and believes that improved economic growth is key to generating first-class public services for the people of Scotland.
