Scotland & China

Scotland and China have a long history of friendship and co-operation. From academic, cultural and tourism exchanges to business and trade links, people in both Scotland and China can benefit from a partnership which fosters the exchange of knowledge and resources. 

As the world’s second largest economy, the opportunities for engagement with China are significant. In recent years, Scotland has seen major investments from China in industries such as oil and gas, textiles and engineering and we have been collaborating on research into fields such as renewable energy and technologies. 

In Beijing, the Scottish Affairs team works to promote and represent the Scottish Government’s cultural, educational and economic interests in China.
