Business and Scottish politics haven’t always been a match made in heaven.
Our expert panel will examine the current political situation in Scotland and consider how well the Scottish Government works with business in Scotland.
What are the main issues relating to business in Scotland for the next few years, and where does the prospect of Scottish independence fit in?
After our discussion there will be an opportunity for drinks and networking.
