CCBC hosted a business luncheon on June 12 for Rick Savone, Canadian Consul General in Shanghai. Consul General Savone is an experienced Canadian diplomat who has served abroad in Algeria, United States, and Mexico. He is widely recognized as an expert in economic development, foreign policy, trade and international business.
The event focused on “How Canada is Growing Business in Shanghai and Eastern China”. More than 70 attendees participated in the discussion on how to enhance Canadian business in Shanghai and Eastern China.
Consul General Rick Savone shared his unique insights about how Canadian business can best position themselves to seize potential business opportunities in China. He highlighted key growth sectors in the Shanghai region: environment and energy, life sciences and health, IT (digital media and smart cities), food and agriculture, and education. A key takeaway from the event was that, although Shanghai remains as an epicentre of Chinese economic development, it is important to understand Shanghai’s shifting economic landscape and the implications for Canadian businesses.
