China continues to be one of the fastest growing economies in the world. Although China’s economic growth is now easing and demand is shifting away from commodities to consumer products and services, its enormous size and rising wealth offers tremendous opportunities for Canadian exporters.

Canadian firms need to know which goods and services can expect rising Chinese demand -- and are open -- or are projected to become open --to foreign companies.

In this webinar from the Conference Board’s Global Commerce Centre, Julie Ades identifies China’s “hottest” sectors” for Canada. These include:

  • Agricultural (for example, cereals, vegetables and live animals)
  • Processed food (for example meat, fish, seafood, vegetables, fruits, nuts food products)
  • Manufactured goods (for example, pulp and aircraft, and some segments of the auto market)
  • Scientific research, technical services and geologic prospecting;
  • Financial services
  • Travel, personal, cultural and recreational services

Don’t miss this webinar identifying the potential for Canada in what could soon be the world’s largest economy.

Webinar Highlights

In this webinar, Julie will describe how we identify China’s “hottest” sectors for Canada. The most promising sectors fall into the “sweet spot” consisting of:

  • High growth potential for Chinese demand
  • Openness to foreign commercial activities
  • Competitiveness of the Canadian industries producing the identified goods and services
  • Capacity of these industries to increase production to meet increasing Chinese demand
