Wilfert: Unique opportunity
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.
