Regional Economic Partnership (REP)

The South of Scotland Regional Economic Partnership brings together a wide range of expertise from across Dumfries and Galloway and the Scottish Borders.

What is the REP?

South Of Scotland City Of Culture

The REP has a collective ambition to deliver a clear and compelling vision for the economic success of the South of Scotland - one which will harness the efforts of all partners. Its role is to inform the development of and oversee the delivery of the Regional Economic Strategy (RES). 


The partnership forms part of a fresh regional structure in the South of Scotland to help drive economic success. This includes supporting South of Scotland Enterprise (SOSE), which operates alongside existing public agencies and Dumfries and Galloway (DGC) and Scottish Borders Councils (SBC).


The REP also links into the Convention of the South of Scotland (COSS) which is chaired by the Deputy First Minister and brings together local agencies and organisations with Scottish Government. 


Members of the REP were appointed through a recruitment process to join Elected Members from both Councils (DGC and SBC) and South of Scotland Enterprise Board members.
