The Scottish Chambers of Commerce Network, in partnership with CISS, has secured His Excellency, China's Ambassador to the UK, Liu Xiaoming to visit Glasgow today, 19th September 2017.
Ambassador Xiaoming is China's Top Ambassador to the United Kingdom and this event marks a significant opportunity for Glasgow and Scotland’s businesses as we build our international trading alliances and air connectivity.
His Excellency and his wife Madame Hu Pinghua are both in Glasgow for a special Business Dinner to be held at the city’s Grand Central hotel where he will deliver a Keynote Speech, highlighting China's global economic strategy and celebrating the China-Scotland Business Alliance. As Scotland looks to global economies to increase our opportunities for trade, Ambassador Xiaoming, one of the most important diplomatic figures in the UK, will seek to strengthen our business ties and widen the reach of the valuable China-Scotland relationship.
His excellency was afforded a traditional Scottish welcome upon his arrival at Glasgow Airport today and was formally greeted by the Airport’s Commercial Director, Francois Bourienne and Head of Airline Marketing, Steven Marshall.
