A CHINA business trade summit being organised by Brendan O’Hara MP has had to be postponed following the decision to hold a UK general election on Thursday June 8.
Mr O’Hara had been working with the China British Business Council, Highlands and Islands Enterprise, Scottish Development International and Argyll and Bute Council to bring the event to Campbeltown on June 22.
Mr O’Hara said: ‘Accessing and exporting into new markets is vital if Scottish business and local economies such as ours are to flourish. Businesses that export are usually more profitable, have greater productivity and are more financially secure, thereby creating more jobs and greater prosperity.
‘However, only 11 per cent of UK businesses export and a mere seven per cent of UK exporters target high growth economies such as China.’
