In his first major policy announcement as Scottish Conservative leader, Douglas Ross will launches an ambitious jobs and economic recovery plan in Inverness.
A key part of the plan calls for a massive acceleration of infrastructure investment across Scotland, including a new UK and Scottish Government joint investment vehicle to expand on the success of City and Growth deals and unite all levels of government on bold infrastructure projects.
Scottish Conservative leader Douglas Ross said: “The Programme for Government this week must focus on how we recover from this crisis, protect jobs and rebuild Scotland’s economy from the brink.
“It should be a programme to invest in infrastructure and connect communities across the country, leaving nowhere behind.
“Scotland has been too divided for too long, not only constitutionally but economically too. We need a massive acceleration of infrastructure projects to bring people across Scotland closer together.
