    Abstract

    This paper has been prepared for a conference on the implications of the Brandt report for Scotland and is concerned with Scotland's international trade, particularly with the developing world, and the effects of trade on the employment structure. Approximately two thirds of Scotland's external trade is carried on with the rest of the United Kingdom; the remaining one third represents Scotland's overseas trade, ie trade carried on with the reset of the world. It is this latter element which particularly concerns us, and the following analysis will be concerned with rest of the world trade only.
