    Premier Christy Clark on “Advancing BC-Asia Trade; Driving BC’s Economy Forward to New Heights” at the CCBC BC Chapter Luncheon

    CHECK AGAINST DELIVERY

    To Senator Austin, I really want to acknowledge the tremendous work that you have done
    in your lifetime to open up Canada’s relationship with China. Reflecting on your
    comments, Mark, you realize those 8,000 hard hats, men and women in mines across the
    province owe so much to the work that you’ve done over the years, Senator Austin, along
    with people like Earl Drake in making sure that Canada got a leg up in our relationship
    with China so that now we have established what is an enduring and deeply respectful
    friendship.

    Welcome Remarks by CCBC President Peter Harder at the 35th AGM & Policy Conference

    CHECK AGAINST DELIVERY

    Honoured guests. Ladies and gentlemen. Welcome to the Canada China Business Council’s 35th Annual General Meeting and Policy Conference. My name is Peter Harder, and I have the honour and pleasure of being the CCBC president. This afternoon is everything we had planned and hoped for when we began this process a year ago. We have close to 250 people here today. There are actually more than 300 Canadians participating in Canadian events this week, and more than 300 people coming to our banquet luncheon on Friday. When you have to put a sold out sign on your events two weeks before your registration closes, it is very gratifying. In fact, we had to turn people away. That’s the type of problem any organization would want.

    CHECK AGAINST DELIVERY

    Thank you for this invitation to speak to this important assembly. It is wonderful to see you all gathered here together. Let me begin by paying tribute to life and work of Paul Desmarais Sr., a great Canadian business leader who was a founding member of this group. He will be missed. Please join me in a brief moment of silence to remember our friend and colleague. Thank you.

  • Ed Fast

    The Honourable Ed Fast, Canada’s Minister of Int’l Trade & Minister of the Asia-Pacific Gateway, Speech to CCBC Evening Banquet In His Honour, April 16, 2013, Beijing

    CHECK AGAINST DELIVERY

    Good evening everyone, bonsoir chers amies, ni hao. Thank you Thomas for that kind introduction (Thomas Cheong, VP of China Wealth Management, Manulife Group). Manulife truly is one of Canada’s international success stories operating in 22 countries and territories, of which 11 are in Asia alone. Two-thirds of its business is conducted outside Canada, with fully one-third in Asia. Since being named Canada’s trade minister by Prime Minister Harper nearly two years ago, I’ve traveled to 37 countries around the world. And it seems that wherever I go Manulife is present – either opening a new office, expanding an existing operation, or simply excelling in emerging markets. Like the time I was in Indonesia on my first visit to that country. Upon arrival, I discovered that Manulife Indonesia had just been named Best Insurance Company of the Year at the ASEAN Business & Company Awards. Your success is Canada’s success. Also, a special thank-you to the Canada China Business Council for the invitation to join you tonight.
