MSP welcomes Dell's contribution to debate
The SNP has welcomed comments from Steve Felice, the Global President of computer giant Dell, that the result of a Yes vote to independence would not impact on their commitment to Scotland.
Chic Brodie, SNP MSP for South Scotland and member of the Energy, Economy and Tourism Committee, said:
“I warmly welcome Mr Felice’s comments on Dell’s commitment to doing business here in Scotland, both before and after independence.
“Scotland is a fantastic place to do business with a skilled workforce, excellent resources and post-independence will become an even more attractive proposition for Dell, and other employers, when the country gains the economic levers of control and can lower levels of Corporation Tax.
“A number of global companies including; Taqa, Avaloq and Samsung are expressing their confidence in Scotland by investing and creating jobs here.
“Dell is the latest company to say they are not against Scotland taking full fiscal and political powers independence, and their comments – along with that the confidence placed in Scotland by Human Resource group Ceridian and representatives from BNY Mellon – will be a blow to the anti-independence parties’ scaremongering efforts.”
