North-East Fife 2019

January 22, 2019

2019 will offer opportunities as well as challenges for businesses operating in North-East Fife.

 

Many of the factors, good and bad, influencing the business environment here will come from outside the area, such as Brexit and the Tay Cities Deal, but others will come from or be influenced by Fife Council and the University of St Andrews.
