Scottish economy soars - contrary to Londons lie

Two Taiwanese companies, Chunghwa and Lite-On have invested heavily in Scotland and the Scots.

Of course after the Scottish parliament is in place the DTI in London will try its hardest to place obstacles in Edinburghs way, in case it hurts the "UK".
