Priorities included supporting businesses in recovery and growth, investing in business premises and infrastructure, and providing skills, training, and fair employment opportunities.

Organisers say one of the highlights was the successful Meet the Buyer event.

This year, the flagship session attracted over180 visitors and included, for the first time, a Construction Zone, which brought together key construction-related businesses such as Fife Council Construction Procurement, BAM UK & Ireland, Morgan Sindall, Kilmac, Lovell Partnerships, FES Group, PFH Scotland, Hadden Group, Robertson Partnership Homes and Balfour Beatty.

This new zone provided attendees with valuable networking and contracting opportunities available within the construction sector.

Pamela Stevenson, Service Manager for Economic Development at Fife Council, said she was "delighted" to engage and experience the success of Fife Business Week 2023 once more.

"This week of events, in our annual business calendar, plays a crucial role in unlocking opportunities and networking for our local businesses," she said.

"The substantial attendance and positive outcomes highlights the resilience and commitment of our local businesses in fostering sustained growth and prosperity for Fife."
