Edinburgh celebrates Catalan National Day

I had the pleasuer of meeting with Xavier Solano, Head of the Catalan Delegation to the United Kingdom on the 16th. The occassion was a gathering in Our Dynamic Earth, Edinbrugh where for the first time the Catalan National Day was clebrated officially in Edinburgh. A fine selection of Catalan wine, tapas, sausages and cheese famed in the Catalan nation greeted the gathering.
Realtions with Catalunya were formally forged by the previous administration in 2002 and the longstanding cooperation between the SNP and Catalan autonomous government were cemented by Parliament Minister Bruce Crawford who greeted the Catalan Vice-Minister for Foreign Affairs and International Co-operation of the Government of Catalonia on the evening.
