EDC aims to provide support to SMEs through Chinese market entry strategies

OTTAWA, Dec. 8, 2015 /CNW/ - Daniel Koldyk, a leading Chinese-Canadian trade expert, will today be a presenter during the Vancouver International Trade and Investment Summit on China's 13th Five-Year Plan.

Mr. Koldyck is a Senior Researcher at Export Development Canada (EDC),where he focuses on international investment, the Chinese economy, and the internationalization of the RMB.

Mr. Koldyk will discuss the importance of the five-year plan process and why it should be thought of as an economic and social blueprint for China's near-term development (2016-2020), and highlight the economic sectors that stand the most to gain.

The presentation will also look at the rapid rise of the renminbi (RMB) as an international currency, and address four critical questions for Canadian companies:

  1. Why is the world paying attention to the RMB?
  2. What are the main drivers behind the RMB's global rise?
  3. Why should Canadian companies get in the game?
  4. How can EDC help Canada's exporters gain a competitive edge?
