Statement - Edinburgh and South East Scotland City Region Deal: Jane Martin

SE welcomes the announcement of the new Edinburgh and South East Scotland City Region Deal

Jane Martin, managing director of customer operations at Scottish Enterprise, said: “The signing of this deal is tremendous news and we congratulate the universities and local authorities for the heavy lifting they have done in getting this over the line.

 “The strong data-driven innovation component presents so many opportunities for so many sectors in Scotland – from health to financial services, tourism and the public sector. We look forward to continuing to work with all partners, industry and the wider business community in progressing these exciting projects in order to ensure the best possible economic impact is generated for Edinburgh, the South East and Scotland as a whole.

“The data revolution is worth an estimated £20 billion to Scotland’s economy, and we are confident the investment announced today will help cement Scotland’s place as the data capital of Europe by 2025.”
