Alex Salmond will be challenged to make the case for Scottish independence to an audience of business leaders from across Britain for the first time at the Institute of Directors Annual Convention on April 25th.

Salmond has claimed that independence will allow him to boost the “overall business environment” in Scotland with a reduction in corporation tax, incentives for the renewable energy industry, and different rates of tax on air passengers.

Simon Walker, hosting his first Annual Convention as Director General of the IoD, will question Salmond on the consequences of independence for enterprise in the UK.

“British business wants to know what Scottish independence means for them," he said.

"This is a question that concerns companies from all parts of the country and I am delighted the First Minister has chosen the IoD’s Annual Convention as the place to put his case to them.”
