Wil­fert: Unique op­por­tu­nity

Kuwait Times - - BUSINESS -

Some­thing new, cre­ative and ex­cit­ing will be com­ing to Toronto, Canada - May 16th to 18th, 2017, said The honor­able Bryon Wil­fert, the Se­nior Strate­gic Ad­vi­sor. Top Expo Group, a leader in in­ter­na­tional and ex­hi­bi­tion pro­mo­tion, spe­cial­iz­ing in real es­tate and in­vest­ment prac­tices has come to Canada to launch an ex­cit­ing in­ter­na­tional prop­erty in­vest­ment show called Cana­dian In­ter­na­tional Real Es­tate Mar­ket­place.

This will be a unique op­por­tu­nity for in­vestors from Kuwait, and the Gulf Re­gion to come to Canada, where there is a wel­com­ing, sta­ble and at­trac­tive in­vest­ment cli­mate. The Gulf Co­op­er­a­tion Coun­cil (GCC) states are a pri­or­ity mar­ket for Canada, with bi­lat­eral trade in­creas­ing steadily over the last few years. Trade reached $6.8 bil­lion in 2012, and the Cana­dian Trade Com­mis­sioner Ser­vice (TCS) ac­tively pro­motes Cana­dian com­mer­cial op­por­tu­ni­ties through­out the re­gion.

While Canada opened its Em­bassy in Kuwait in 1978, the es­tab­lish­ment of for­mal di­plo­matic re­la­tions oc­curred in 1965. The strong bi­lat­eral re­la­tion­ship be­tween Canada and Kuwait was demon­strated dur­ing the 1991 Gulf con­flict, with Cana­dian Armed Forces per­son­nel serv­ing with Armed Forces of Kuwait, as well as the role played by Cana­dian fire­fight­ers in ex­tin­guish­ing sig­nif­i­cant oil well fires and blowouts. Now more than ever Canada is the place to in­vest and in par­tic­u­lar the Greater Toronto re­gion. Cana­dian Mar­ket­place’s lead­er­ship in rec­og­niz­ing the vast po­ten­tial of the Canada trans­lated it­self into pro­vid­ing a show­case at the metro Toronto Con­ven­tion Cen­tre fea­tur­ing over 170 Ex­hibitors, in­clud­ing land de­vel­op­ers, builders, Con­sulate Gen­er­als, cities, banks etc.

They have done their home­work and this has re­sulted in pro­vid­ing a re­ward­ing op­por­tu­nity for in­ter­na­tional in­vestors to do trans­ac­tions in a se­cure mar­ket. The Am­bas­sador of Kuwait to Canada, HE Ab­dul­hamid Al­failakawi will be speak­ing at the open­ing of the event, (in dis­cus­sions with the Am­bas­sador he was very pleased at this sig­nif­i­cant op­por­tu­nity), along with The Mayor of the City of Toronto, John Tory, and other dig­ni­taries. This high­lights the im­por­tance the show has for po­lit­i­cal lead­ers and rec­og­nizes the sig­nif­i­cant con­tri­bu­tions in­vestors from Kuwait will be mak­ing to Canada.

Cana­dian Mar­ket­place Com­pany, led by Pres­i­dent Mo­hammed Qadoumi, con­cluded an ex­clu­sive rep­re­sen­ta­tive re­la­tion­ship with Tridel a ma­jor es­tate de­vel­oper based in Toronto, which is one of the largest builders of con­do­mini­ums in Canada. They were founded in the 1930’s by the Del Zotto fam­ily, who still have con­trol­ling in­ter­ests in the firm to­day. They rec­og­nized both the po­ten­tial and the unique­ness of cre­at­ing a “one stop shop­ping” mar­ket­place un­der one roof. Toronto, Cana­di­anMarke­place, and Cana­di­ans ex­tend a warm wel­come to our Kuwaiti vis­i­tors and oth­ers from the Gulf Re­gion in May 2017.
