The Moray Economic Strategy
In 2012 the Moray Economic Strategy was produced by the Moray Community Planning Partnership to provide a long term economic strategy for Moray.
Moray Economic Strategy 2022-2032: Towards Future Prosperity and Inclusive Growth
The strategy was reviewed and in November 2022 a refreshed strategy was published. The strategy takes account of changes in the economic landscape since 2012 not least cuts to public funding; it also reflects the work undertaken for the emerging Moray Growth Deal. The strategy is for the period 2022-2032. It maintains the overall objective to grow and diversify the economy and focuses on achieving four outcomes:
Outcome 1 Qualification Levels - An increase across all ages and genders in qualifications relevant to growth sectors.
Outcome 2 Small Business Growth - More small and medium-sized businesses employing between 10 and 100 people.
Outcome 3 Talent Attraction, Retention and Return - More skilled, higher paid jobs that deliver net in-migration in the 16-29 age range.
Outcome 4 Business Competitiveness - An increase in capital investment and focused workforce development to strengthen competitiveness.
The strategy was also developed in conjunction with the Moray Skills Investment Plan.
