Scotland's China Strategy

Here is a fascinating article detailing the economic connectivity between Scotland and China:

Scotland's Strategy For A Stronger Engagement With China, published in August 2006, is seen by the former first minister Jack McConnell as one of his significant successes. It identified four key points of entry into China for Scottish companies. They were: micro/opto electronics; energy; financial services and education and life sciences. The SNP-led Scottish government is due to publish a "refreshed" version of the Labour/LibDem strategy, taking into account recent changes.

The first Asian conference of the business network Globalscot takes place in Hong Kong on September 18-19.

I chose the above passage because of its reference to Globalscot and the importance of the Scottish Diaspora to Scotland's China strategy.
