PBB Global Logistics to facilitate Chinese delegation’s visit to Canada

by Canadian Shipper

PBB Global Logistics, which recently led a 15-day trade mission to China, will be the facilitator for a high-level delegation of some 59 Chinese government officials and business people who are to visit Montreal, Ottawa, Vancouver and Toronto, May 27 – June 2.

PBB will serve as an intermediary for the group, leveraging contacts and networks in both Canada and China. This is the third major Chinese delegation to Canada that PBB has organized in the past two years.

“This is a very powerful delegation with the highest level of government involved. We are delighted to see that the relationships PBB has established in China are leading to significant opportunities for Canadian companies,” says Mike Scott, president & CEO, PBB Global Logistics.

Cao Bo Chun, Secretary General of the CCPC (Chinese Communist Party Committee) of Guangxi Province, will lead the delegation. Cao heads a province of almost 45 million people and an economy that is among the fastest growing in China. Many other dignitaries, including Guangxi Vice Governor Zhang Wenxue, will be accompanying the mission.

The mission’s objective will be to increase awareness in Canada of the many opportunities available for doing business in Guangxi. The delegations also hope to build new relationships between Canadian and Chinese companies at the highest levels of business and government.

The delegation plans to meet with Canadian business and government representatives in Canada’s two largest provinces, including officials from the Ministry of Industry & Commerce of Quebec and Ontario Exports Inc. Furthermore, a Trade & Investment Symposium is planned for May 31 in Toronto, to be held in conjunction with the Canada China Business Council. Throughout the visit, Guangxi delegates will be available for one-on-one meetings with local businesses in order to discuss specific joint ventures.
