    What is Inclusive Growth?

    At Scottish Enterprise we’ve been trying to make inclusive growth as practical a concept as possible for colleagues, partners and customers. Our one-liner on “What is Inclusive Growth?” is More, better jobs that benefit more people and places.

    quality of jobs?
    who benefits?
    which places benefit?
