    Abstract

    This short paper examines the first and last Annual Reports of the Highlands and Islands Development Board (HIDB) as a means of highlighting the achievements of the Board throughout its lifetime of a quarter of a century. It does not attempt a systematic assessment of the contribution of the HIDB to the development of the regional economy, but rather seeks to gain an insight into the interventions and issues associated with its work. The paper also considers some of the matters arising from this period which may spillover onto the developmental and training agenda of Highlands and Islands Enterprise and its Local Enterprise Companies.
