The forum will feature keynote speeches by Professor Jun Zhang, Dean of SOE of Fudan U., and The Hon. Senator Yuen Pau Woo, Facilitator of the Independent Senators Group of the Parliament of Canada, followed by a panel discussion with business leaders and experts from both China and Canada. The forum will provide a unique platform to discuss challenges, collaboration, and continuity under the ongoing trade disputes.
