Helping B.C. Businesses Move into the Largest Rat Race: Canada to Asia Business Network Launches Just in Time for Chinese New Year

    VANCOUVER, Jan. 22 /CNW/ - Feb 7th, 2008 will greet millions of Chinese
the world over in New Year celebrations for the Year of the Rat. For one
Richmond Company it's been a race to launch a unique venture to coincide with
the many wonderful New Year festivities.
    The Canada to Asia Business Network (CABN) will publically inaugurate its
membership network on the web and help bring knowledge and structure to the
entrepreneurial who want to successfully do business in China. The Year of the
Rat is already showing signs that it will help keep China Asia's economic
tiger buoyant as it races into 2008.
    To help BC companies share in China's prosperity the CABN will help
British Columbians wishing to engage in that country's colossal yet daunting
markets by offering its members a unique method of entry into the Chinese
economic system.
    Founder and president, Tommy Yuan, has been informally helping Canadians
explore the Chinese economy for many years. With the launch of the CABN, Tommy
is continuing that role in a unique way. By using the internet as a
sophisticated network business people in Canada learn about the rich variety
of China's marketplace and the many ways of tapping into it.
    "Members of the Canada to Asia Business Network get to learn the "dos"
and "don'ts" of conducting business in China with a helping hand on the ground
in China," said Tommy. "It is well known that entry into the huge business
opportunities of China's ever-expanding economy is often a bewildering
experience and a challenge because of the enormous time and effort it takes to
locate appropriate resources, handle regulatory obstacles and establish the
appropriate contacts. One's time spent in China can be made easier by
employing the resources of a person or company that has high level business
and government connections in China," he added
    The Canada to Business Asia Network uniquely enables in that companies
and entrepreneurs choose only the services they need in a program called '2
Steps to Asia'
    The first step involves setting up an online profile called a Web Booth
in which the local company is showcased to the many Chinese companies wanting
to connect with Canadian businesses. The second step involves connecting with
the right business people and government officials to assist placement in
    Other services offered by the CABN include: Web information on Asian
business delegations coming to Canada, assistance with setting up sales or
manufacturing channels, highly discounted access to industry trade shows and
any Canada to Asia Business Network sponsored tradeshows, assistance with
business travel plans and representation for your company in China.
    Since coming to Canada many years ago Tommy Yuan has been involved with
businesses that help Asian people explore the Canadian landscape. Now he wants
Canadians to come to China and succeed in one of the world's most vibrant and
profitable marketplaces.

    The Canada to Asia Business Network is an organization with members from
private and public sector corporations that need assistance to enter and
navigate business opportunities, in all its forms, in China and, in the
future, other parts of booming Asian markets. The network is tailored to meet
the differing needs of its members. It endeavours to achieve this through
different membership levels designed to effectively fit together the
particular corporation's requirements and activities, and in doing so
facilitate individuals to make business connections in China using the
resources of the Canada to Asia Business Network.
