Why China Info for Scotland

Scotland has a particularly long and rich history of successful engagement with China.

This website offers a wealth of information about China, focusing on selected and reviewed information that is relevant for the Scottish community. 

As a gateway between Scotland and China, this website aims to help develop effective Sino-Scottish business, cultural and educational links.

Welcome to the China Info Scotland Portal

which provides information and resources to those interested in engaging with China and aims at facilitiating communication between stakeholders already active with China.

Any crosscultural engagement needs a base of knowledge and expertise; the INFORMATION section presents a guide through most important news and internet sources on China.

Initiated at the Confucius Institute for Scotland in the University of Edinburgh, the portal is meant as a hub for collecting and disseminating information about China related activities in Scotland in organisations, institutions, businesses and community activities, under CONTACTS.

As education about China in schools and HEIs is one of the most important tasks of the overall China Plan, the EDUCATION section brings together the main partners involved. Information for teachers, pupils and students, include among others, study opportunities, scholarships and resources.

The BUSINESS section provides information about key players in Scotland undertaking or engaged in promoting business links with China, as well as support organisations and some practical advice.

As a Chinese saying goes "A hundred time hearing is not as good as one time seeing"; the best route to understand contemporary China is to experience it. The TRAVEL section provides some basic information and practical tips for tourists and travellers.
