Industry Leadership Group
The Industry Leadership Group is made up of key figures in the Scottish textile industry. It is inclusive of all sectors within the industry: including representatives for SMEs and designers, large manufacturers, public sector bodies, and funding agencies. The ILG meet quarterly to discuss important decisions facing the industry. You can find the terms of reference for the ILG here.
The purpose of the ILG is to drive the objectives of the Ten Year Strategy Plan for the industry. The current strategy document can be accessed here: Scottish Textiles Industry Strategy.
