The Belt and Road Initiative and opportunities for Canadian companies
China’s globalization drive – the Belt and Road Initiative – is widely propagated, but badly understood. It goes well beyond the historical Silk Road and offers many opportunities for Canadian firms, especially given the strong Hong Kong connection that Canada enjoys.
HKCBA is pleased to invite you to an insight-sharing and discussion session about The Belt and Road Initiative over breakfast.
