Liz Cameron, Chief Executive, Scottish Chambers of Commerce commented:
“It is encouraging to see the Scottish economy grow albeit it marginally. This will provide a sense of confidence for private sector businesses who have worked hard to deliver growth for Scotland.
“Other economic figures, such as positive employment trends, have pointed towards improvements but we are not out of the woods yet. Consistent and solid growth is required and for this to happen, support for businesses in the right areas is necessary.”
