Discover China with Us!
From the CEO’s Chair – January 2017
China is Canada’s second largest export market. Many of our Cape Breton companies are already doing business there and Chinese firms are showing interest in developing the Port of Sydney. Already the world’s largest market for cars, cell phones and seafood, it is the fastest growing market for luxury goods, air passenger traffic, electrical power plants and tourism. China has the most internet users, the longest high speed rail network and the busiest sea port in Asia. There are well over 100 cities in China with a population of more than one million. According to the Conference Board of Canada, China’s economy will grow at rates of 6-8 per cent per annum for the next decade. In China, seeing is believing!
That is why we are excited to announce a special invitation from the Sydney Area Chamber of Commerce to join us next Oct 2017 to Discover China! You do not need to be a Chamber member to participate in this trip of a life time. Our Chamber is partnering with Citslinc International Inc. to provide an 11 day, all-inclusive tour of Beijing, Xi’an, Suzhou, and Shanghai for the amazing price of $2,499 (CDN) per person. On your own this trip would cost in excess of $7000.
Citslinc is one of the largest providers of foreign tours to China and works exclusively with over 800 Chambers of Commerce in Canada and the USA. I have personally taken this 11 day tour in 2016 hosted by the Annapolis Valley Chamber of Commerce and highly recommend the experience. I came away with an entirely new found appreciation for China’s people and its future. I was very impressed with the Citslinc Tour group and their high level of professional service.
This fully escorted trip is meant to be an introduction to the people, history, culture, commerce and daily life of this exciting developing country. The itinerary is packed with sights and activities that will give you a full and rewarding experience including Tiananmen Square, The Great Wall, Forbidden City, Ming Tombs, Emperor temple’s, luxury gardens, Terra Cotta Warriors, Emperor’s Summer Palace, impressive Chinese architecture, and much more. Several cultural shows and culinary experiences are available as well as many shopping opportunities for jade, pearls, art, clothing, and silk.
There will also be an opportunity for those interested business travellers on this trip to make business contacts in China arranged through the Chinese Chamber of Commerce. The trip departs on Oct 25, 2017, returning Nov 4, 2017. Your trip cost includes:
• Round trip International airfare Toronto-Beijing on wide body jet
