Economic and Fiscal Impact of Re-opening Scottish Hospitality Sector

A new analysis by BiGGAR Economics has quantified the economic and fiscal benefits of re-opening the Scottish hospitality sector.

Graeme Blackett, Director of BiGGAR Economics, said:

“This study highlights the severe negative economic impact that the COVID-19 lockdown has had on the hospitality sector, the businesses and people who work in the sector itself, and in the supply chain. 

 
“It also demonstrates that the changes to the restrictions in the level system that the hospitality sector has proposed, can place the hospitality sector and the wider food and drink supply chain in a much stronger position. Adjustments to the restrictions could get thousands of people back to work and allow the sector to generate turnover and contribute significantly to the public finances in the coming weeks and months.”
