2008 Business Leaders Trip to China

On Nov. 10 th, Tianjiao International Educational Group hosted its second “Business Leaders Trip to China”. With the great support from Medicine Hat and District Chamber of Commerce, this trip received remarkable feedback. The delegates are from 7 different Chambers or districts, Medicine Hat and District Chamber of Commerce, Kitsilano Chamber of Commerce, BC Chamber of Commerce, Surrey Board of Trade, Tri-cities Chamber of Commerce, Cold Lake and Toronto.

During this 10 days excursion, our Canadian delegation was able to fully experience the real beauty of China- something riveting and enthralling for everyone involved, and take away memories that will last a life time.

Besides the cultural components, the delegation attended the business seminar in Beijing Haidian District People’s Government. The Standing Committee Member of Haidian District Committee and Vice Deputy Heads of Haidian District People’s Government, Mr. Zhiqiang Yang, the Vice-president of Haidian CPPCC and the chairman of Haidian federations of industry, Mr. Di Sun hosted the seminar. Both Sides held a hot discuss on how to develop the economy under global financial crisis.

Further, this inaugural trip was also a great networking tool between the Canadian business members themselves as they had many chances to meet and discuss business and social agendas.

“This trip offers the smaller businessman that can’t afford to do this sort of trip on a regular basis, an opportunity to see and learn about a new culture and about the business practices they follow,” says Medicine Hat and District Chamber President and C.E.O. Mary Lou Hansen. “It’s a wonderful opportunity and the Chamber is very pleased to be able to offer something like this for our Chamber members.”

For Real Estate Agent Bob Bourke, who took part in this opportunity, the trip offers him a chance to make some new contacts and to expand his cultural horizons in a stress-free way. “China is not a place where I would have gone to normally, but when this opportunity presented itself. I jumped at the chance. Not only is it a chance to learn about the culture of the country, it’s also a chance to learn from the business people there. China has always been very aggressive when it comes to business, and a chance to see that firsthand and up close is a tremendous opportunity.”

Hansen agrees. “For some, the language barrier and the unfamiliarity with the types of food available, makes travelling to China a daunting proposition. Seeing it this way, in setting where there are always English speaking people available to answer questions or to help, with the added benefits of the business and networking components of the trip, make this a great benefit for any business person.”

For our business leaders, not only do they have the priceless opportunity to see the true beauty of China, they also have a chance to network with the business people from both Canada and China and broaden their horizons.
