Frequently Asked Questions - How would an independent Scotland represent itself internationally through embassies and consulates?
An independent Scotland’s overseas network will be comparable to that of other nations of a similar size. The current Scottish Government’s proposed overseas representation for an independent Scotland is set out in Chapter 6. A crucial part of the role of our overseas offices will be to look for opportunities to promote Scottish goods and services directly. The Team Scotland approach will be built on and with independence our government departments, the private sector and our diplomatic missions will work together to promote Scotland.
