Canada’s Next Trade and Investment Mission to Mainland China Scheduled for Mid-November

Canada will lead a multi-sectoral trade and investment mission to mainland China in mid-November 2018 focused on the Atlantic provinces of New Brunswick, Prince Edward Island, Nova Scotia, and Newfoundland and Labrador. Sectors targeted for participation in the mission include food and beverages (including seafood), clean growth, education and tourism.

Canadian federal ministers and premiers for the Atlantic provinces of New Brunswick, Prince Edward Island, Nova Scotia, and Newfoundland and Labrador announced on 10 July their intention to lead a multi-sectoral trade and investment mission to mainland China in mid-November 2018. The mission is intended to support Atlantic Canadian businesses and organisations in targeted sectors that are looking to create new partnerships and build business-to-business relationships in mainland China, Canada’s second largest trading partner after the United States.

The mission will visit Qingdao, Shanghai and Beijing and will include trade shows, business-to-business meetings tailored to participants’ needs and opportunities in the mainland Chinese market, and networking events. The objectives of the mission include facilitating market access for Atlantic Canadian small- and medium-sized enterprises that are export-ready and have an ability to do business in the mainland Chinese market, creating trade and investment opportunities for Atlantic Canadian businesses, promoting Canada as a prime tourism destination by leveraging the Canada-China Year of Tourism, and strengthening cultural and economic relationships between Canada and mainland China. Sectors targeted for participation in the mission include food and beverages (including seafood), clean growth, education and tourism (Atlantic Canada as a tourist destination).
