Junior Team Canada Mission to China
Thirty-five Junior Team Canada Ambassadors, representing each region of the country, will be hitting the ground in China from July 27th- August 15th, 2016 to promote Canadian industry and culture in the world's largest economy. The team was selected from a national competition with hundreds of applicants. Ambassadors were selected based on their ability to lead, work in a team, their communication skills, and most importantly their commitment to their communities and country.
Each Ambassador is responsible for partnering with businesses, governments, educational institutions and organizations in their communities to raise $5, 500 in sponsorship for the team which represents approximately half of their total cost of participating. Global Vision funds the remaining half through national and regional partnerships.
Working with the Embassy of Canada, the Canada-China Business Council and other in-market partners, Global Vision coordinates opportunities for JTC to engage Chinese industry, government, education and youth leaders in order to obtain market intelligence and key contacts for our Canadian partners.
During the Mission, JTC will focus on commercial opportunities for Canadian enterprises in economic sectors with particular growth potential in the Chinese marketplace such as agriculture, bio-tech, clean-tech, education, engineering, information communications technology, manufacturing, mining, natural resources, and tourism.
Upon our return, JTC will produce market sector and tailored reports for our partners which will include a summary of the Mission, market intelligence gathered, opportunities identified and key contacts made.
