CBI Scotland called for more help for exporters in Scotland
A leading business group has called on the Scottish government to give more help to exporters.
CBI Scotland said there needed to be a greater focus on Scotland's export industry and private sector investment.
It also said there should be support for an additional runway at Heathrow to aid Scottish firms in accessing a wider range of destinations.
The CBI also questioned whether existing targets for export growth in Scotland were sufficient.
In a submission to Holyrood's economy, energy and tourism committee, CBI Scotland said the economy's "engines of growth" needed to change.
In a list of recommendations to the committee, the group questioned whether current targets could help indigenous businesses expand abroad whilst at the same time encourage foreign firms to invest in Scotland.
