Join us on Thursday, October 21 at 11:30 a.m. for a face-to-face discussion with leading experts on Canada-China relations.
Québec's economy is closely linked to China's, not only because that country has nearly 1.5 billion consumers, but also because of the many Chinese goods purchased by Québec companies to produce goods here.
China accounts for 10% of the province's total international trade and is the main export market for Québec companies in certain sectors, particularly agriculture and mining. That makes it Quebec's second largest trading partner after the United States.
China is more than ever a vast market full of business opportunities for our companies, and Québec has several long-standing diplomatic representations there. China is now seeking to join the Comprehensive and Progressive Agreement for Trans-Pacific Partnership (CPTPP), which to date includes Canada and 10 other Asia-Pacific countries, which would open up further Canada-China trade.
These close trade relationships are taking place against a backdrop of political tensions between China and Canada, reminding us of the need to understand the risks and issues involved for any entrepreneur with business partners there, or wanting to develop business there.
