This virtual trade mission provides a platform to explore international trade opportunities in the state of California, from Los Angeles and Hollywood to Silicon Valley and other key locations.  

Delegates will hear from, and meet, relevant business leaders and leading Californian and British companies as well as access will be given to sound market intelligence


Why California?

If California were a sovereign nation, it would rank as the world's fifth largest economy, ahead of India and behind Germany based on 2019 data clearly showing that California is a force to be reckoned with.


Financiers in California have been imaginative in seeking and employing capital, and many of the country’s largest banks and corporations are based in the state.  California retains its dominance in the aerospace industry in the film and television industry, and in agriculture and viticulture.

  • Virtual networking to meet the Scottish delegation.
