Purpose of the group

The Cross-Party Group on China seeks to promote relations between Scotland and China, not only in recognition of the crucial importance of China as an economic power; but also of the role of China as a cultural force. The CPG seeks to work with organisations and authorities to increase cultural, educational and economic exchange between the two countries. And to develop a dialogue with the Chinese Consulate in Edinburgh, and to engage with the Chinese community in Scotland.
