A land of opportunity – China is the fastest-growing major economy in the world and has been for the past 30 years, with an average annual GDP growth rate of over 10 percent.
China’s demand for energy resources, infrastructure, technology and goods and services continues to grow creating many potential partnership opportunities with Scottish companies.
From our China offices in Beijing, Shanghai and Hong Kong, our team of experts can help Scottish companies explore opportunities to do business in China. We also encourage Chinese companies to partner in Scotland.
Mark Dolan oversees SDI's Great China region, working alongside Mingyu Ge who manages our Shanghai office.
We work with partners such as China-Britain Business Council (CBBC), UK Trade and Investment (UKTI) and our GlobalScot network to assist Scottish companies and promote Scotland’s business interests in the country.
