Scotland's top export destination

The USA continues to be Scotland's top international trading partner with around 16% of all our exports entering the States, worth £4.6 billion.

The USA's size alone — four time zones across 50 states and vast cultural differences across regions — means it has to be treated as a series of regional markets, with difference characteristics and business practices.

This Scottish North American Business Council event, delivered with partners will offer a quick, practical introduction to international trade opportunities in the USA.

• Life sciences
