Innovation and partnership have a strong role to play in the development of the economy in rural and remote areas of Scotland said scottish secretary Michael Forsyth during a visit today to Callanish Ltd at Breasclete, on the Isle of Lewis.
'This is an excellent example of how a highly innovative company can bring great economic benefits to one of our more remote communities,' Mr Forsyth said.
'Callanish Ltd and Scotia Pharmaceuticals have to be congratulated for their continued commitment to the Western Isles, and to the development of their workforce. I was particularly impressed to learn of the company's close links with Lews Castle College in this respect.
'The involvement of Western Isles Enterprise and HIE in supporting Callanish Ltd during the various stages of its development has played a major part in the success of the company to date. This is yet another example of how the enterprise networks are working in partnership with business to re-shape the Scottish economic and industrial landscape.'
