About the Event

Canada′s economic stability, highly-skilled workforce, industry strengths, strategic location and lifestyle advantages make it one of the best places in the world to invest and do business. Add to that the fact that Canada has much of what China wants and needs to support its future growth, and the conditions are right for lot of investment. China′s direct in Canada has been rising rapidly, but the potential is there for much larger numbers. Now that the Foreign Investment Promotion and Protection Agreement will soon be ratified, both countries are looking to advance their relationship through even more investment and partnership opportunities.

On June 19 in Hong Kong, join Sarah Kutulakos, Executive Director of the Canada China Business Council as she discusses Chinese investment in Canada. Sarah will provide an overview of where Chinese investment stands today, the challenges faced by Chinese firms in Canada, and how markets such as Hong Kong play a role. Sarah′s presentation will draw on examples of investment successes and investment misses, and look at Australia-China relations as an example of the direction that she predicts Canada′s trade and investment with China is headed.

Sarah′s extensive China experience at the helm of Canada′s pre-eminent bilateral trade and investment organization enables her to speak with authority and depth on the investment relationship and to help Chinese companies identify areas of growth and opportunity in Canada.

About the Speaker

Sarah Kutulakos
Executive Director & Chief Operating Officer
Canada China Business Council

Sarah Kutulakos joined the Council in 2007 and has revitalized CCBC′s role as Canada′s premier bilateral trade and investment organization by reinvigorating the council′s mandate to provide business services to its members, to be a catalyst for business, and to be a powerful advocate for the Canada China relationship. She has done this by implementing enhancements to member service, a substantively more effective online resource, an aggressive public relations agenda, and internal infrastructure improvements to make the organization more efficient while keeping it lean.

Prior to CCBC, Sarah worked for 11 years in marketing, product development, and management with a major multinational corporation, where she had multiple assignments involving China. Sarah has managed worldwide product businesses that marketed to China and used China-based sources of supply. She was involved in several projects requiring cooperation with the Chinese government. Sarah has led both established and start-up businesses within the context of a global corporation and has broad emerging market business experience. She has been involved in the Greater China region since the late 1980\u8217 ?s when she lived and worked in Taiwan. There she was the first non-Chinese employee of a local high-tech startup firm, where she gained a deep understanding of Chinese business practices.

In addition to serving on CCBC′s board of directors, Sarah is an independent director on the board of the Industrial and Commercial Bank of China (Canada). A fluent Mandarin speaker, Sarah′s interest in China began at the University of Wisconsin, where she studied Chinese, marketing, and international business. She holds an MBA in finance and operations from the Simon School of Business at the University of Rochester. She frequently speaks on China issues, including marketing, trade, investment, and Canada-China relations.
