BAG has produced a response to the Scottish Government Aviation Strategy Consultation.
In BAG’s Strategic Framework one of BAG’s desired outcomes is “BAG facilitates opportunities for our members to network and build collaborative relationships with the widest representation of the UK supply chain”. This is underpinned by promoting a Regional Structure, i.e. truly working with the whole of the UK. BAG therefore operates a BAG Scottish Region that represents interests of BAG and its Members, and provides a community for Members based within this particular geographic area.
We firmly believe in the economic and cultural benefits associated with an active aviation industry and believe that it should be taken into consideration as part of this framework. Aviation is a key means of connectivity for Scotland both within and without the country. Continued support and planning for aviation will help secure jobs that already exist within the sector and support the long term growth of the Scottish economy in general.
