Abstract

The trading environment for Scottish business seems set to improve following a bleak year in
1993. World GDP continued to recover last year and is estimated to have grown by 2.3% following 0.7% growth in 1991 and 2.3% in 1992. However, this strong growth was not reflected in Scotland's key export markets of England and continental Europe. The global recovery is due to a strong performance in North America, Australasia and the industrialising economies of Latin America and the Pacific Rim.
