The SMP, with NIDOS and the Scottish Fair Trade Forum, are in contact with each of the major parties competing in the May 2016 Scottish Parliamentary elections.
Representing our members, we have submitted six suggestions for inclusion in manifestos. Click here to read these suggestions.
For the SMP, these manifesto asks have come from our existing lobbying and advocacy strategy which in turn came out of member consultation. We continue to be a member-led network.
We look forward to continuing to work closely with NIDOS and the Scottish Fair Trade Forum in the coming months, as a strong united sector, in representing the priorities of our members. We will look to co-host a hustings event in the run up to the elections in which members will be able to meet candidates and ask how the respective political parties can support their links with Malawi.
