SCDI COMMENT ON DIAGEO INVESTMENT

Commenting on news that Diageo is to invest £1 billion in Scotland, SCDI Chief Executive, Dr Lesley Sawers said:

“We welcome this announcement as a vote of confidence in the skills and expertise of the Diageo team in Scotland and recognition of the growing significance of the global market for Scotch whisky.

“Over time, this investment will have a positive impact on our shared ambition of the doubling of Scotland's exports over the coming decade, and create much-needed employment, particularly in rural parts of the country.

“The SCDI team looks forward to working with Diageo as it continues to grow its Scottish presence.”
