About the Event:
Join AdvantageBC’s President and CEO, Colin Hansen, for a discussion of Vancouver’s continuing evolution as a key North American financial centre focusing on trade and investment flows with East Asia. With a strategic time zone location on the west coast, rapid growth in Asia-bound exports and inbound investment, and with the establishment of a Renminbi Settlement Hub across Canada, Vancouver now ranks among the top global financial centres. Colin will underline a number of key factors contributing to this growing importance, including:
  • Benefits to business from British Columbia’s globally competitive business and tax advantages
  • China’s increasing importance to BC’s trade and investment profile
  • Why and how Canadian & Chinese companies should be paying attention to RMB-denominated trade
  • AdvantageBC’s “Canada Brand” 4-city alliance with Montreal, Toronto and Calgary for the upcoming Asia Financial Forum in Hong Kong, January 2016
