Vancouver mayor Gregor Robertson’s green business mission to China is seeking to tap that country’s demand for sustainable buildings.

In a deal announced Tuesday, the mayor said a new research and development centre to promote Canada’s green building capabilities and technologies will be built in Tianjin, China.

“Vancouver is renowned for our green building expertise, and this new R&D centre in Tianjin will help our companies tap into China’s growing demand for more efficient, sustainable buildings,” Robertson said. “It’s a great opportunity to showcase our talent, and, in the process, secure new investment and strengthen our local economy.”

The new centre will serve as a one-stop location for Canadian technology companies operating in China.
