Chief Secretary to the Treasury Danny Alexander MP joined top Lib Dem List candidate for Glasgow Katy Gordon at an independent whisky bottlers and suppliers in Charing Cross to unveil the party’s export action plan. They visited Douglas Laing & Co., an independent, family run business who export all over the globe, discussed the barriers to export that businesses are experiencing and were shown the vaste range of samples in the company’s extensive tasting room.
Speaking after the visit, Katy said:
“Scotland’s relative position in exporting has fallen back over the last three years. The Scottish Liberal Democrats will reverse this. We will set a target to grow the economic value of Scotland’s exports by 50% by 2020. Douglas Laing & Co is exactly the sort of successful business we want to help expand their overseas trade.”
