In this webinar, Jacqueline 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
