SWA Priorities 2016

11 May 2016

The Scotch Whisky Association (SWA) promotes the interests and profile of Scotch Whisky around the world, of our 61 member companies, and of the industry as a whole. Our priorities are a sustainable and competitive business environment, promoting open markets and trade, safeguarding Scotch against unfair competition, and encouraging the responsible consumption of alcohol.

The SWA and our industry looks forward to working with the new Scottish Government and MSPs from all parties to deliver sustainable and inclusive economic growth. We have four specific priorities for the new Parliament:

  • PARTNERSHIP TO TACKLE ALCOHOL MISUSE
  • BOOSTING EXPORTS
  • FOSTERING DYNAMIC BUSINESSES
  • PROMOTING THE CIRCULAR ECONOMY
