Foreign Investors 'Not Put Off' Scotland

Foreign investment in Scotland is at a 15 year high.

A total of 76 foreign direct investment (FDI) projects were secured in 2012, the largest number since 1997 and 49% more than in 2011. 

There is ``no sign of investors being deterred from coming to Scotland'' because of the possibility of independence, according to professional services firm Ernst & Young which compiled the survey. 

It said that ``if anything, the reverse appears to be true''. 

Ernst & Young's annual ``attractiveness'' survey looks at the appeal offered by different parts of the UK to foreign investors.
