Fraser of Allander Institute – Scotland’s Budget 2017
This annual briefing event analyses the state of the economy, the public finances and the options open to the Scottish Cabinet Secretary for Finance as the Scottish Government prepares for its Budget later in the year.
This seminar – the only one of its kind in Scotland – brings together leading experts from the Fraser of Allander Institute alongside key figures in the business and policy communities to discuss the priorities for Scottish public spending and taxation.
It aims to inform key stakeholders – business, central & local government, the third sector, and trade unions – of both the context in which the Budget will be set and key policy choices.
The event will also be an opportunity to reflect on the implications for the public finances of the developing negotiations of the UK to leave the European Union and the fiscal options open to the Scottish Government to respond to a post-Brexit world.
Papers supporting the event will be published in a Special Issue of the Fraser of Allander Economic Commentary.
