China Entrepreneur Club to visit Canada

By anna smith

The China Entrepreneur Club has been called the world’s most exclusive, with 50 members comprising billionaires who oversee companies that together make up $600 billion (Canadian) annual turnover.

The group are planning their first trip to Canada in an eight-day tour in which they hope to make business deals.  The visit comes as Canada seeks a new “golden” era where businesses hope to connect.
