The Cross Party Group Meetings at the Scottish Parliament
YCP is a member of Scottish Parliament's Cross Party Group on China and on Racial Equality in Scotland. Meetings are held usually quarterly to discuss about topical issues that are raised by members.
Cross Party Group on China
The Cross-Party Group on China seeks to promote relations between Scotland and China, not only in recognition of the crucial importance of China as an economic power; but also of the role of China as a cultural force. The CPG seeks to work with organisations and authorities to increase cultural, educational and economic exchange between the two countries. And to develop a dialogue with the Chinese Consulate in Edinburgh, and to engage with the Chinese community in Scotland.
Cross Party Group on Racial Equality in Scotland
The Cross Party Group on Racial Equality aims to provide a forum for issues relating to race and anti racism and to seek solutions to the discrimination faced by Scotland's black / minority ethnic communities. To work through cross-party dialogue in promoting the role played by Scotland's civic society, Parliament and Government in actively building a Scotland free from racism. The Group will seek to identify and address racism across society, including through learning from the experiences of BME groups.
