Canada-China Trade Logistics Policy Forum
When Prime Minister Harper visited China in February 2012 , he remarked, “Canada is using its Asia Pacific Gateway, and new and strategic trade corridors in China, to open markets and create jobs and economic growth back home."
On the heels of the Prime Minister's visit, in Vancouver on March 27, 2012, Canada will host a delegation of policy-makers from China to talk about trade logistics and see Canada’s Asia-Pacific Gateway first-hand. Entitled “Gateways in a Connected World: Logistics and International Trade,” this event will give participants a chance to learn the latest on Canadian and Chinese logistics policy and regulation, tap into a broad and growing network of practitioners and policy-makers, and gain privileged insight into each other’s logistics environments.
The Forum has attracted a distinguished panel of Chinese and Canadian speakers from both government and industry, who will discuss topics under four themes:
The Chinese delegation will include representatives from their central and provincial governments, logistics and transportation organizations, and industry, including the National Development and Reform Commission; the China Material Storage and Transportation Association; the China Transportation Association; the provinces of Fujian, Yunnan and Shanxi; and China COSCO Logistics Inc.
With the continued expansion of global supply chains and Canada-China trade now at an all-time high, the trade logistics sector is more critical than ever to Canadian and global economic growth. This Forum will give participants a holistic perspective on pressing issues, and a voice in helping guide future policy development in the trade logistics industry.
