Document Highlights

Chinese Demand is the first of two publications that assess Canadian opportunities in China. The goal of the publications (the first, a report; the second, a briefing) is to help identify where Canada might focus its policy and business attention as it reinvigorates its economic relationship with China. The series also intends to inform about Canada’s public policy agenda and its business strategy.
This report's specific contribution to the series is to examine China’s demand for goods and services and the country’s openness to foreign engagement. The identified goods and services include agricultural products, processed food, and some manufactured products—such as aircraft. Findings show that opportunities to sell services to China are currently small, but they are growing in a number of sectors. This could translate into more opportunities for Canadian firms if China opens its services sectors to foreign direct investment.
