[ 05-03-2014 ]

This week, Scottish Chambers of Commerce (SCC) hosted the National Administration for Industry & Commerce (NAIC) of the People’s Republic of China.

 

In a joint meeting led by SCC International Ambassador & Vice President of Dundee and Angus Chamber of Commerce David Valentine, the meeting explored the vital role the Chambers of Commerce network plays for small and medium sized businesses. The delegation congratulated the Chamber of Commerce network on its many successes which have enabled the growth of businesses including the Graduate Recruitment programme and Business Mentoring Scotland. The delegation, headed up by Mr. Liu Hongliang, Department Chief at the National Administration for Industry & Commerce met SCC as part of the department’s commitment to developing relationships with the Scottish business community.

                            

Commenting on the meeting, David Valentine said:

 

“The Chinese market is of great interest to Scotland and the joint meeting with department chiefs from NAIC has been extremely useful to enable detailed discussion and understanding on the current and future work of the Chambers of Commerce network.

 

“This engagement with NAIC is part of SCC’s wider strategy to promote international business opportunities to Scottish businesses. We look forward to further interactions with NAIC and China as a whole to promote Scotland’s international reputation as a great place to do business.”

The delegation leader, Mr. Liu Hongliang said,

 

“Our delegation visit to Scotland has been thoroughly rewarding. Increasing our understanding of the Chamber of Commerce network will assist us to engage with Scottish businesses in the future.

 

“NAIC are keen to collaborate with Scotland to benefit both of our mutual economies. I look forward to further co-operation and engagement with Scotland and the Scottish Chambers of Commerce.”
