Tremendous growth in Chinese investment to Canada

“Deepening its strategic partnership with China will help Canada recover from recession,” Foreign Minister John Baird told Xinhua in a recent interview.

The Minister added that the Canadian exports to China increased since 2009 –which was the worst year for the country due to the effects of the subprime mortgage crisis– while the Canadian exports to other countries fell down.

Mentioned that trade between both countries has tripled since 2001 and reached 57.7 billion Canadian dollar in 2010 and that there has been “tremendous growth in Chinese investment to Canada”.
