On January 26, 2022, iAffairs Canada hosted a virtual panel discussion to explore and address Canada and China’s evolving relationship.
The audience was made up of government officials, diplomats, politicians, policymakers, trade commissioners, journalists, scholars, professors, students, and many more. The panellists had an insightful discussion, and a very engaging ‘Q&A’ period followed, covering a range of themes, including trade relations, military and security concerns, and Canada’s emerging Indo-Pacific Strategy.
The speakers examined Canada’s foreign policy position with respect to China and how it can approach the bilateral relationship in the future. The panel featured Dr. Wenran Jiang, Margaret Cornish, Dr. Jeremy Paltiel, and Peggy Mason. Hadi Wess, Managing Director at iAffairs Canada, moderated the discussion.
This event was presented by iAffairs Canada, in partnership with the Canadian Foreign Policy Journal, the NPSIA Students’ Association, and was supported by the Norman Paterson School of International Affairs.
