Scotland’s world-leading expertise to the fore again in India and Bangladesh


We’ve already seen reports of Scottish scientists and researchers working to improve the health, economic circumstances of the poor, across the globe. With particular regard to India and Bangladesh, Scots are involved in helping to remove arsenic from water supplies, in improving agriculture and in reducing diabetes. See these:

Scottish university research to help developing nations remove arsenic from water supplies

Scottish research to be used in $1.2 billion initiative to help poor Indian farmers

University of Dundee awarded £7 million to work in partnership with India to fight diabetes

Now, we see from

‘Specialist expertise from Scotland is to help grow and sustain new social enterprises in India, following collaboration between the two countries. Leading social enterprise development organisation, The Social Enterprise Academy, has launched its first base in India supported by the Scottish Government.’

Due to Scotland’s world-leading status in social enterprise creation, Edinburgh will host the Social Enterprise World Forum in 2018.

        It is their ‘news values’ approach which precludes it. They decide on their stories by perusal of the print media, and since these are overwhelmingly British/English nationalist, then anything which shows Scotland/Ireland/Europe/Africa in a good light is excluded. If they have to include something then it will be damned by faint praise, innuendo, and qualifications.
