EDMONTON, Feb. 14, 2012 /CNW/ - Samuel Young, CA, CFA, a corporate
finance and tax partner with Collins Barrow Edmonton, one of Western
Canada's largest dedicated mid-market audit, tax and financial advisory
services firms, was privileged to be among the 40-member executive
delegation accompanying Prime Minister Stephen Harper from Feb. 8 to 11
on his official three-city visit to China.
Young says of this once-in-a-lifetime trip that he felt "tremendously
honoured and proud to have had the opportunity to participate in such
an important mission for my country and in such illustrious company."
The delegation's mission was twofold: to strengthen partnership and
trading arrangements by striking new and renewed bilateral trade deals,
and convincing Chinese leaders to sign a comprehensive agreement aimed
at allowing Canadian banks, insurers, investors and companies in the
energy, natural resources, scientific research, technology, agriculture
and other key sectors, along with those already operating there, to
gain much greater access to their markets.
