In 2017, Fife Council launched an economic strategy.  It sets out how it will work together with partners to achieve more robust and sustainable growth for Fife’s businesses

Fife's Economic Strategy 2017-27 (PDF Download)  is our economic strategy for the region. This strategy is soon to be revised.

The strategy identifies four priority areas:
