While there has been a continuing interest in the subject of inward investment into Scotland in its various dimensions, much less attention has been paid to Scotland in its UK context and to inter-regional inward investment issues. In February this year, however, the Welsh Affairs Committee published the results of an inquiry into inward Investment into Wales and this presents some interesting insights into Scotland's major competitor for inward investment within the UK and on the comparative position. There are also important lessons for Scotland in playing the inward investment game.
