Western Science student Tony Ma has been named one of 30 young Canadian leaders to represent Canada on a Junior Team Canada trade mission to the Chinese cities of Guangzhou, Chongqing and Chengdu from Aug. 1-15. The mission looks to create meaningful partnerships between Canadian and Chinese businesses and attracting foreign investment to his region.
Ma is looking for partnerships in the GTA and Western community on his mission.
“I look forward to helping my partners capitalize on the fast-pace economic growth in China,” Ma said. “I’m thrilled to work with them in the coming months to accomplish their individual mandates abroad.”
Ma hopes to approach the Town of Richmond Hill, Western, as well as various other organizations in the education, technology and clean-energy space to partner with him on this mission.
“I’m excited to share the wealth of opportunities available in my city. Richmond Hill is a fantastic place to do business and even better place to live,” Ma said. “I want to help my business partners establish valuable connections in China so that our entire region can benefit.”
