About the Inquiry
The Committee is aware of the challenges facing Scotland’s businesses, workers and enterprise agencies due to COVID-19. As the response to COVID-19 is a priority, the Committee has agreed to cancel its budget inquiry into SDI and internationalisation. That call for views is therefore closed.
Instead, the Committee’s budget scrutiny for 2021-22 will focus on the response to COVID-19.
On 25 August 2020 the Cabinet Secretary wrote to the Finance and Constitution Committee regarding the postponement of the Medium Term Financial Strategy (MTFS) and the publication of the Scottish Budger.
