In January 2011, a historic agreement was signed between the Royal Zoological Society of Scotland (RZSS) and the China Wildlife Conservation Association (CWCA) for the loan of two giant pandas to Edinburgh Zoo.

This was the result of five years of talks between Scotland, China, and a team of people from RZSS and was witnessed by the UK's Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg and China's former Vice Premier, now Premier, Li Keqiang.
