In June of 2017, the Scottish Government confirmed that they would create a new enterprise agency for the South of Scotland. This agency will operate in two local authority areas: the Scottish Borders, and Dumfries and Galloway. It will focus on the needs of the area, driving inclusive growth, supporting communities and capitalising on people and resources.
The Scottish Government want to consult the public to find out more about what people want from this agency, and how it can best help the south of Scotland.
