The Young Chinese
Professionals Launch Reception
On Friday 18th June 2010, the Chinese Consulate General in Edinburgh, Scotland-China Leaders, young Chinese professionals and friends across industries joined together to celebrate the launch of the Young Chinese Professionals Scotland. The YCP Launch Reception was opened by Cathy Gu and Peter Kwok, our Conveners followed by an inspiring speech from Mr Zhou Youbin, Deputy Consul General of the People's Republic of China in Edinburgh, who was our guest of honor at the Reception.
The YCP's launch attracted representatives from a wide spectrum of important organizations active in Scotland-China affairs such as the Scotland-China Education Network, the 48 Group Club, the China-Britain Business Council, the Confucius Institute for Scotland, HSBC, Edinburgh & Lothians Racial Equality Council, the Royal Zoological Society of Scotland, the Blackford Trust and Ricefield Chinese Arts and Culture Centre.
During the Ceremony, the YCP Award was presented to Mr Zhou Youbin for his outstanding commitment to developing the friendship between China and Scotland in the 21st Century. Two other major awards were presented to our first YCP Affiliates - Dr Judith McClure CBE, Convener of SCEN, and Dr Roger Collins, Honorary Fellow of the School of History, University of Edinburgh. Both of them were awarded for their significant contributions to the launch of YCP.
