A Dundee businessman has claimed Scottish companies are missing a huge opportunity by not targeting the burgeoning Chinese market.
James Buchan, managing director of app development and website design company Zudu, recently returned from exhibiting at one of the country’s biggest trade shows.
The Food and Hotel China event attracted 91,000 trade buyers and 2,450 exhibiting companies from 69 countries.
However, Mr Buchan, who is vice-president of Dundee and Angus Chamber of Commerce, said Scottish companies at the event were “conspicuous by their absence”.
He said: “We would have liked to see a lot more Scottish companies ready to take advantage of the opportunities on offer, especially since there are so many support networks available to help companies to navigate new markets.”
