China strategy - launch of online information hub 9 October 2013

The Scottish Government’s China Strategy Working With China outlines a commitment to facilitating more regular sharing of information between stakeholders by developing a central hub for information on Scotland-China links.

We are pleased to announce that the hub has gone live today and provide instructions for accessing it below. It is not intended to be a catch-all on China – but provide a space to share the progress, development and opportunities as we move forwards in implementing the China Strategy.

Although the Scottish Government will facilitate the site, it will be collectively owned and as strong as its network of users. We encourage you to post and share information and would welcome feedback as the hub continues to develop.

How to join the Scotland China Information Sharing Hub

The Information Hub can be found on LinkedIn. This is a business-based social networking website, accessible in more than 200 countries around the world, including both in Scotland and China.

In order to access the Information Hub, membership to LinkedIn is required. Registration is free and is completed via a very quick and simple process at LinkedIn’s homepage – Once signed in to a LinkedIn account, the Hub can be accessed via this link: Scotland and China Group. A search for “Scotland and China” the search engine at the top of the LinkedIn homepage will also locate the Hub.

The Scotland China Information Sharing Hub

The Hub currently consists of a main content “group” named “Scotland and China.” Within this, are four subgroups which are arranged per priority of the China Strategy, namely:

  • Sino-Scottish Trade and Investment
  • Scottish Education Links with China
  • Research and Development Links between China and Scotland
  • Scotland and China’s Culture, Sport, and Tourism Links
  • There is also a fifth subgroup for members of the “China Strategy – Implementation and Delivery Forum.”
  • These groups provide a platform for members to discuss relevant issues and post informative material.
