Former James Bond star SIR Sean Connery is delighted he will officially open Donald Trump's $1.5 billion (GBP1 billion) golf course resort in Scotland - because it will boost the country's image around the world.
U.S. real estate tycoon Trump has been given the go ahead by the Scottish government to build 500 new houses, 950 holiday homes, a hotel and a world class golf course at the Menie Estate in Aberdeenshire.
And Scottish actor Connery is lined up for the official launch - he will be given the membership number 007 and will be the first person to tee off on the course.
He says, "During tough economic times, this is a major vote of confidence in Scotland's tourist industry and our ability to rise to the challenge.
"I look forward to seeing a new gem in the north-east that is good for Aberdeenshire and good for Scotland."
Trump's proposal faced tough opposition from locals worried about possible damage to the environment, and it was originally rejected by Aberdeenshire Council before being approved by the national government.
And Connery is delighted with the reversal, adding: "It's exactly this kind of swift decision making and focus on boosting the economy and local job opportunities which shows that Scotland is an excellent place to do business."
