Mayoral Delegation to China

In 2013, CCIA successfully organized the first Mayoral Delegation to China. Nine Mayors from Waterloo, King, Belleville, St. Catharines, etc. paid official visits to 9 cities that are most representative of the economic development in China, such as Beijing, Shanghai, and Xi’an. During the trade mission, the mayors and delegates were greeted by a warm reception from the Chinese government and enterprises. From the Mayors’ perspective, the nine-cities-in-nine-days adventure was an eye-opening experience of today’s China. CCIA received high praise for their support in establishing friendship and expanding investment and trade cooperation between Canada and China. Positive relationships formed between the cities of Langfang and Waterloo; Cangzhou and St. Catharines; as well as Xianyang and Belleville. CCIA also signed cooperative agreements with the Province of Shanxi’s Chamber of Commerce and the International Economic Cooperation Association. The CCIA Trade Mission was a huge success and achieved its goal of furthering positive relationships between China and Canada.

In continuation to a successful Mayoral Delegation to China in 2013, CCIA organized a second Mayoral Delegation for a 9-day Trade Mission and visit to China in 2015.

The delegation consisted of eight Mayors and Deputy Mayors , including the Deputy Mayor of Toronto Denzil Minnan Wong, Mayor of Windsor Drew Dilkens, Mayor of Burlington Rick Goldring, etc. The event received great support from the Canadian federal, provincial and municipal governments. The Trade Mission focused on specific trade sectors including agriculture, natural resources, real estate, cultural exchange, financial services, public sector and education, manufacturing, transportation, etc. The Mayors and delegates visited Beijing, Shanghai and Fuzhou during the visit and were surprised by the near-unlimited business opportunities that China could provide for Ontario enterprises with its fast-paced urbanization and rapidly growing economy. They acknowledged that the improvements in Chinese foreign trade policies had paved the way for strengthening relations and the benefits of cooperation between the two countries were immense. This trade expedition marked a new chapter for the economic and trade exchanges between the Chinese marketplace and Canada.

The head office of CCIA is currently located in Markham. In order to introduce the Canadian business community to opportunities in China’s emerging markets, CCIA provides a great network of staff which offers programs and services in both Canada and China; as well as a good opportunity and platform for business, financial and real estate investment. Based on the principle of mutual benefits to both Canadian and Chinese Enterprises, CCIA has helped to resolve the inevitable challenges of doing business in another country by providing Sino-Canadian business communities with business insight, intelligence, connections and networks.
