Next month will mark the 20th anniversary of the first elections to the devolved Scottish Parliament.
There will no doubt be some reflection on the successes and failures of the parliament since then. But whatever your view, it is hard now to imagine Scotland and Scotland’s economy without Holyrood playing a central role.
The significance of this role is only likely to increase in the years ahead. With Brexit, major structural shifts in our economy, the continuing recovery from a decade of austerity and the possibility of a 2nd independence referendum, further upheaval is inevitable.
