Welcome! Please join us on our Mission...
To promote awareness, understanding and collaboration between Scotland and Asia to create mutually enriching economic, cultural and educational opportunities, thereby enabling the people of Scotland to engage effectively with the people of Asia for a shared future.
The Mission is achieved through mounting unique programmes that provide engagement and access to innovative thinking, ideas and initiatives as well as by supporting the Asia programmes of other organisations in Scotland and initiatives in the countries of Asia in the areas of Policy & Politics, Business & Economics and Arts, Culture & Education.
We are dedicated to informing the people of Scotland about Asia from the Gulf to Japan, fostering business and cultural exchange, and reigniting the expeditionary spirit that propelled previous generations of enterprising Scots to the East.
