Salmond to make case for Scottish independence next month
First Minister Alex Salmond will use the Institute of Directors (IoD) annual convention next month to make the case for Scottish independence.
Salmond will try to convince British business leaders, who are eager to know what Scottish independence would mean for them. The case of Scottish independence is a big question for business leaders as it would have considerable effects on businesses.
Speaking on the topic, the institute’s director general Simon Walker said, “This is a question that concerns companies from all parts of the country and I am delighted the First Minister has chosen the IoD's annual convention as the place to put his case to them.”
Walker also highlighted Salmond’s comments on proposals to hack corporation tax, deliver inducements for the renewable energy industry and set up different tax rates on air passengers.
Apart from Salmond, the annual convention will hear from former BP group chief executive Lord Browne, Royal Mail chief executive Moya Greene and drinks firm Diageo’s chief Paul Walsh.
The Institute of Directors annual convention is scheduled to take place at the O2 Arena in London on 25th of April.
