Meeting with Cabinet Secretary for Culture and External Affairs

内阁文化及外交大臣会议

On 21st June, Ms Fiona Hyslop, Cabinet Secretary for Culture and External Affairs has met with members of the Young Chinese Professionals Scotland. The meeting was an initial dialogue held at the Scottish Parliament to enable Chinese professionals to express their feelings about their lives and work in Scotland and introduce their current global community projects with the YCP.

 

“I am particularly interested in how you work it as a diaspora yourself… there are some lessons we could learn from how you networking and also in terms of the advice you could provide us and how we find links to get to an understanding because the best way to build links between two countries is by two peoples,” Ms Hyslop said.

 

“It would be interesting to see how the diaspora here, be it students, be it professionals and be it here for long term or short term and how they could contribute towards greater links between Scotland and China,” said Mr Humza Yousaf, Deputy Convener of Cross Party Group on Racial Equality. 

 

“The Cross Party Group on China was initially set up to connect two countries together, but more importantly I think it is to connect two peoples together,” added Mr Gil Paterson, Deputy Convener of Cross Party Group on China.

 

“We aim to unite and promote young hearted Chinese professionals in Scotland… by bringing these talented people together, we hope to continue to be one of the driving forces that will improve not only our Chinese professional community, and also Scotland-China partnerships from a local to global level,” said Mr Peter Kwok, co-convener of YCP and director at PEAN.     

 

“It is very pleasing and encouraging to work for a firm that cares about people and community. My home office has been very supportive with what I do for YCP,” said Ms Cathy Gu, co-convener of YCP and auditor at Ernst & Young LLP.

 

“We are very keen to look at some of the key issues in relation to the Chinese professionals in Scotland… we would also like to know their attitudes towards living and work in Scotland,” explained Mr Michael Guo, Project Leader in YCP National Survey and award winning finance lecturer at the University of the West of Scotland.

 

“We are also launching the ‘My experience in China’ programme for Scottish school students to consider about careers in China in the near future when they finish with their studies,” said Ms Sarah Gu, YCP Project Leader in Global Seminars Initiative and former hedge fund consultant in Shenzhen, China.

 

The meeting was also joined by representatives of the Chinese community, Confucius Institute at the University of Glasgow, Glasgow Chinese Students and Scholars Association and Scottish Government’s China Team. During the day event, Chinese professionals also had the chance to share ideas at the YCP meeting and attend the First Minister’s Question Time.

 

We would like to thank Ms Hyslop for the meeting, Mr Humza for organising the event, Mr Paterson for coming to support us and everyone who has participated with us on the day.
