CCFSO Speaker Series with Dr. Peter Chen, Former Counselor at the Canadian Embassy in China

Over the past several decades, Canada and China have co-operated in agriculture and food trade despite some recent turbulent events in the bilateral political relationship. Dr. Peter Chen will highlight some past examples, share his observations and reflect on the factors which have contributed to success. He will also consider constructive approaches to maintain cooperation in a long-term perspective.

Dr. Peter Chen worked on Canada-China agriculture trade access and development for 15 years and has participated in trade access negotiations for the Canadian canola and lumber/logs exports to China. He was twice posted to the Canadian Embassy to China as the agriculture and forestry counselor. Over his career with Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada, Canadian Food Inspection Agency, Dr. Chen served as a Deputy Director, Canada-China Trade Relationship, and participated in discussions relating to China's accession to the World Trade Organization (WTO).
