In Review: The Canada-China Relationship

In February 2022, Dominic Barton, Canada’s Former Ambassador to China, joined OG100 for an exclusive hour to discuss the evolving Canada-China relationship. China, whether you want to participate there or not, is a market you should understand because of its undeniable significance. China’s contribution to global GDP has climbed from 1.7% in 1990 to a projected 20.3% by 2025. That places it just behind the U.S. market (22.4%) and surpassing the EU’s contribution (17.9%). China’s size and growth make it a “must do” market for Canadian companies. Dominic covered a lot of ground, including how important it is to BE on the ground in China. The market moves so quickly, if you are not on the ground, you are out of date.
