First Minister Nicola Sturgeon opened the new Edinburgh offices of Chinese power company Red Rock Power, a subsidiary of State Development and Investment Corporation (SDIC), on Tuesday.
The Scottish Government said the state-owned investment holdings company plans to invest further in renewable developments in Scotland, building on its existing offshore wind projects.
Ms Sturgeon said: “SDIC’s presence here is a vote of confidence in our renewables sector and we are committed to working closely with SDIC to support their investments in Scotland.
“We also want to identify opportunities for Scottish supply chain companies in the Chinese market and are keen to work with SDIC to stimulate more investment into Scotland.
“I hope this marks the start of a new and successful chapter for both SDIC and Scotland’s renewables sector.”
She met with Wang Huisheng, chairman of the SDIC board, who said: “We are looking forward to participating in more areas of Scottish economic development and contributing more to the prosperity of Scotland.
