Scotland lies in the north of the UK and is a fairly prosperous country. The country has two major economic clusters:

  • Edinburgh: the UK’s second-largest financial centre
  • Aberdeen: a major hub for the oil and gas industry.

A growing and successful games and film industry has developed around Edinburgh, Glasgow and Dundee. Other growing sectors include sustainable energy, engineering and technology, particularly in life sciences and health. In 2017 the Netherlands was the largest export destination for Scottish goods and services.
