A tradition of difference

Interview with Iain MacDonald, Director-General of the ICA (International Co-operative Alliance) in The Herald (it's a newspaper in Scotland). "When I go to these countries they are fascinated that we come from the UK and particularly Scotland. In Japan especially, they know more about our co-operative movement than we do, and have a huge respect for it. The Robert Owen Society is one of the biggest voluntary organisations in Japan, and they make regular pilgrimages to New Lanark." - Link
