On May 6, 2010 Canada’s Technology Triangle will lead a delegation eastward to China along with our post secondary (Wilfrid Laurier University, University of Waterloo, Conestoga College) and Regional partners.
The purpose of this mission is to recruit new business and investment in Waterloo Region. This is also a great opportunity to open doors for local delegates from a wide variety sectors to see and meet with some of the key business, government, and science and technology leaders in China that are shaping one of the world’s newest powerhouses.
Innovation and success continue to be driving factors in Waterloo Region. Now more than ever our Region must remain visible on the international scene, while recognizing emerging powerhouses such as China, and the many opportunities for strategic partnerships between our two countries. With more than $2 Trillion in foreign exchange reserves, cash-rich Chinese enterprises are looking to expand into North America, including the Waterloo Region, to secure advanced technology, environmental and managerial know-how, global brands, sourcing, and distribution channels.
So, if an itinerary packed with key meetings and presentations in each stop (Hong Kong, Shanghai, Chongqing, Chengdu and Beijing), and the desire to network with established connections match your company’s desire to tap into the vast resources China has to offer, this mission is a must.
This mission is by invitation only. To find out further information regarding the May 6-17, 2010 China Mission, please contact John Jung at firstname.lastname@example.org.
