First Minister Nicola Sturgeon and her top team have been holding regular meetings across Scotland to get the chance to speak to people around the country about issues affecting them.
The First Minister has also used this ‘Cabinet on tour’ series to speak directly to businesses.
In Dumfries, the First Minister and Deputy First Minister John Swinney met with Currie’s European transport. The company provides logistics and transport services across western Europe and has its headquarters in the town.
The First Minister spoke to Paul, who showed her how the vehicles are tracked across Europe.
In Aberdeen, the First Minster and the Deputy First Minister visited pipelines 2 data, an Aberdeen based pipeline support service firm that has worked with several major oil and gas pipeline operators and related industry providers.
They met with CEO Steve Mayo, who showed them the production operation on the site.
In Alloa, the First Minister paid a visit to William Bros. Brewery, a local company with big plans to break into overseas exports markets.
Along with Richard Lochhead, the Cabinet Secretary for Food and Drink, she toured the company’s plant where its craft beers are brewed and bottled.
In Inverness, the First Minister joined Mr Lochhead again to meet the people behind The Highland Bothy – a new ‘street food style’ way to help promote highland food producers.
