The Scottish Local Authorities Economic Development Group (SLAED) is a network of senior officials from economic development teams across all 32 Scottish local authorities.

 

We are a national voice for local economic development services in Scotland, linking the work of our member councils, also in collaboration with wider partners.

 

We have wide-ranging interests, all directed towards supporting economic development through investment and employment in our local areas.

 

Our primary objectives are:

 

  • To promote sustainable economic development and well-being
  • To promote best practice and increased impact in the delivery of economic development services through collaboration and benchmarking, driving a culture of continuous improvement
  • To inform and influence economic development policy and programmes
