Speaking of the event, Roddy Gow, chairman of the Asia Scotland Institute said:
“Scotland is blessed with an enormous international community of friends around the world.
Since the Independence Referendum there has been much debate on how Scotland can best engage with the wider world.
Strengthening connections with this network has to be one of our first steps.
We can use this global network to shout loudly about successes that are perhaps not as well-known as golf, whisky, oil or gas.”
