This report summarises the key results from our latest Fraser of Allander (FAI) Scottish Business Monitor, published in partnership with Addleshaw Goddard.

The survey sampled 500 firms in April from across the Scottish economy.

The survey examined business sentiment in the first quarter of 2022 and the outlook and expectations throughout 2022.

Our survey results show that business sentiment remained positive in the first quarter of 2022, with all core indicators except export activity remaining optimistic.
