Synopsis

Canada is within the world’s top 10 largest economies, and despite the economic downturn of the pandemic, the Canadian economy has proved resilient and is projected to rise to the 8th largest by 2024. Canada is also within the world’s 15 most competitive economies, recently beating out the U.S. on global rankings for the first time this year. Canada’s growing population, highly skilled workforce, stable banking system, and business-friendly regulatory environment make it one of the most attractive destinations for Asian investors and enterprises. 

Canada is home to many global startups and multinational companies who have set up business, manufacturing, processing, and technological operations. With 26 airports and 18 world-class seaports, Canada is positioned as an opportunistic regional hub for companies from Asia looking to expand into new lucrative markets in the Americas. Canada offers optimal supply chain connectivity and direct maritime access to Asia, Europe and Latin America. 

High-growth industries such as real estate, clean technology, agri-food, plant-based protein, professional services, and emerging technology have generated a great deal of interest from investors worldwide. Join the CABC and our partners to discover the many investment opportunities that Canada has to offer. This event is part of the Canada-ASEAN Business Leaders Series organized by the CABC, in partnership with the Government of Canada.
