About the China-Scotland Business Awards

Scottish firms have been working hard over the year to forge business partnerships with China and deliver commercial success. It is vitally important that we acknowledge their innovation, effort and commitment and celebrate their outstanding export successes. In doing so, the awards also serve to showcase the best Scotland has to offer and to encourage other businesses and organisation to look to China as an opportunity.

We are proud to announce that this year's awards will be in partnership with Scottish Development International, Scottish Enterprise, the Confucius Institute for Scotland in the University of Edinburgh, the Scottish Confucius Institute for Business and Communication at Heriot Watt University and media partner, Business Insider Magazine.
