Chinese overseas investment has risen exponentially since the mid-2000s and has also become much more diversified both in terms of targeted industries (from natural resources to other sectors such as technology) and of capital origins (from mainly SOEs to private capital).
The new momentum behind Chinese investment in developed economies is spurred by a growth model shift in China that is pushing Chinese firms to upgrade their technology, pursue higher levels of the value chain, and augment managerial skills and staffing to remain globally competitive. What are the implications of these investments for the National Capital Region and our vibrant innovation cluster? What opportunities and challenges do they present for both the public and private sectors here in Ottawa? How can Canadian governments and industries be better prepared to realize benefits from the investment flow from China?
On June 27, 2017, HKCBA Ottawa in partnership with Grafoid Inc. will host a Seminar on Chinese Investment in Canada’s Innovation Sectors and How Hong Kong Can Help to facilitate a timely discussion by policy makers, industry leaders and venture capitalists on key emerging topics.
This event is free for HKCBA members and $25 for non-members.
