Scotland Office and Department for Environment Food & Rural Affairs ministers met a wide range of stakeholders, who are helping to deliver our priority of growing the economy.

Scottish Secretary Alister Jack was in attendance today and later hosted a reception with the Scotch Whisky Association. Also at the show was Secretary of State for Food & Farming, Thérèse Coffey.

Tomorrow (Friday) Farming Minister Mark Spencer and UK Government Minister for Scotland John Lamont will be meeting stakeholders and touring the Edinburgh showground.

Showgoers dropping into the UK Government marquee will be able to hear from departments and agencies about how they are delivering for people in Scotland and experience a range of exciting interactive displays.

Also present in the marquee will be exhibits from a number of exciting UK Government funded projects. This includes a burrowing robot which ‘swims’ through grain bulks to ensure crops are stored more efficiently – innovations which place the UK at the forefront of the agri-industry.
