This upcoming event is designated to address the potential responses of Canadian policies to two recent Chinese related multilateral agreements. The regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership (RCEP), which was announced last November, is the world’s largest free trade agreement covering approximately a third of the world’s population and economy. The China-EU Comprehensive Agreement on Investment (CAI), which was signed last December, will reportedly grant the EU enhanced market access in China. These two agreements might have a deep impact on Canada-Asia trade and investment relations. Hear from top business experts from Canada, the US and China discuss and debate the best strategies to promote Canadian business interests in China and Asia.
