The explosive growth of China agriculture and urbanization of the Chinese economy has created opportunities in Canada in the field of agriculture and food development. China not only offers a huge potential market for Canadian agri-foods, but also creates opportunities in the areas of Canada-China agriculture education, research, development and production and agricultural-related life science events. "Going global" is no longer just an option for most organizations, but a necessity. Both public and private sectors may find it is very useful to link into Chinese networks of customers, partners, and potential investors. Cultural, language and regulatory system differences have been major limitations in this exchange and cooperation.
The Canada–China Agriculture and Food Development Exchange Centre (CCAgr) was founded upon these principles. Youming Zhao, a professional agrologist in Canada, the founder of Canada–China Agriculture and Food Development Exchange Center, has built wide a contact base in the Canadian and Chinese agricultural and agri-food industries through more than twenty years work in both countries. The CCAgr has the support of many Canadian and Chinese agricultural professionals, university professors, senior government officers and entrepreneurs. The CCAgr utilizes the culture, language and technical skills, in combination with Canadian industry knowledge of Canadian professionals to bridge this gap.
Our Vision :
To be a leading organization in promoting Canada-China agriculture, agri-food industry cooperation.
To be the largest platform in Canadian Chinese communities for promoting our local agri-foods, farming and agricultural tourism.Our Commitment:
We aim to be a key, long-term partner for our customers and we want our services to add significant value for their business.
To dedicate to Canadian agriculture, the Canadian regulatory system and the opportunities Canada has in the booming Chinese marketplace. To actively promote Canadian and Chinese cooperation and exchange in agriculture, agri-food and life sciences through a wide range of services for our members and the public. We believe the best way to achieve the goal is to build strong partnerships. We currently are creating and updating three CCAgr-partner databases.
1. AA database- The Academic to Academic database, which includes universities, colleges, science and technology institutes, research parks, discovery districts, innovation and technology commercial centres, as well as professionals with academic backgrounds.
2. BB database: The Business to Business database, which includes producers, growers, farmers, manufacturers, exporters and investors, as well as professionals with expertise in these sectors.
3. CC database: The city to city, country to country database. Both partners enjoy similarities, such as both having a large life sciences cluster or both having a strong flower industry or livestock sector. This database also includes professionals with agriculture and agri-food management and technical expertise in their regions.
The time is ripe for an agricultural-based cooperation and exchange between Canada and China, as China's economy is expanding and Canada is looking for new markets.
26 years of Canadian-Chinese agri-industry experience to serve you!
Together We CAN make a difference!
