China declared a “war on pollution” in 2014 amid concern its heavy industrial past was tarnishing its global reputation and holding back its future development. But it has struggled to reverse the damage done by decades of breakneck economic growth, much of it based on the coal-burning power sector.
The past year witnessed unexpected and destabilising political events that implicated international relations and climate action. As we usher in the new year, the serious environmental challenges that China face remains.
In connecting cleantech with capital, we’re excited that we are one of the supporting organisation of the Cleantech Cooperation and Investment Roadshow 2017, (March 16-24, 2017) in Canada. This event is co-organized by the Chinese Ministry of Environmental Protection and the Inclusive Development Consulting in Canada. In light of the new rooster year, we are offering a new year discount of 10% for Global Green Connect non Chinese members!
The main objective is to deepen Asian investors’ understanding of the cleantech industry in Canada and explore investment opportunities, through:
- Roundtable discussion with relevant government agencies at federal and provincial levels
- Matching meetings between Asian investors and Canadian cleantech enterprises.
- This visit is scheduled in mid-march and is connected with the Environmental Forum and International Trade Show (Americana) in Montreal
The organizers are expecting to bring no more than 30 companies from Asia to Canada, and there will be high-level discussion with government, investors, and enterprises in Canada on cross-border clean technology investment opportunities between Asia and Canada. The organisers will be charging USD 6,500 per person to cover domestic transportation between cities in Canada, 4-star hotel accommodation and meals during the 8-days visit in Canada. Seats are limited, and a special 10% discount will be offered to Global Green Connect’s members until March 1, 2017.
