CIC National Capital (Ottawa): China’s Kaleidoscope: Relations with Canada and the World

October 15, 2019 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm EDT

$15 – $35

The consequences of a changing China’s distinct world view are being felt around the world, including in Canada. What are the factors influencing China’s foreign and economic policy today? What does China’s world view mean for our future?

Our featured speaker is Guy Saint-Jacques, Canada’s Ambassador to China from 2012 to 2016, who will share his first-hand experience dealing with these issues. One of Canada’s most senior diplomats with a career spanning nearly forty years, Mr. Saint- Jacques also served as Canada’s Deputy Head of Mission in London and in Washington, and was our Chief Negotiator and Climate Change Ambassador from 2010 to 2012, in addition to being posted to Kinshasa and Hong Kong.
