China Daily (Canada) - - FRONT PAGE - By WANG RU in Beijing

The in­vest­ment op­por­tu­nity in On­tario, Canada, was cen­ter stage dur­ing the 2ndChina Over­seas In­vest­ment New Year Fo­rum held from Jan­uary 15 to 16 at the Great Hall of the Peo­ple in Beijing.

Song Yi­jun, the coun­selor of the On­tario of­fice of the Cana­dian em­bassy, was in attendance and spoke on trans-na­tional op­er­a­tions, in­vest­ment and fi­nanc­ing as it per­tains to On­tario.

Or­ga­nized by the In­vest­ment As­so­ci­a­tion of China and China In­ter­na­tional Cul­tural Com­mu­ni­ca­tion Cen­ter, this year’s fo­rum fo­cused on China’s over­seas in­vest­ment strate­gies such as the Silk Road Eco­nomic Belt and the Asian In­fra­struc­ture In­vest­ment Bank.

In his speech Song played up On­tario as the fi­nan­cial and man­u­fac­tur­ing cen­ter of Canada and an im­por­tant trade part­ner of China.

By pre­sent­ing suc­cess­ful in­vest­ment cases from China to On­tario, where 64 per­cent of Canada’s to­tal for­eign com­pa­nies are based, Song said China and On­tario have a huge po­ten­tial for co­op­er­a­tion op­por­tu­ni­ties in dif­fer­ent in­dus­tries such as min­ing, agri­cul­ture and in­for­ma­tion tech­nol­ogy.
