The Global Buyers Mission was a tremendous success for BC Wood’s China program as we had well over 35 delegates from China looking to source Canadian wood products. Participants expressed very positive reaction and enthusiasm in coming to Whistler and meeting with BC Wood members. Following the event, Mr. Jeff Li, BC Wood’s in-market representative in China, took several of the Chinese buyers on an extended mission program, visiting member companies on-site at their facilities. The program was well received both from members and the mission delegates.
As the momentum and energy of the GBM settles down, we are back to work making final preparations for the CIEHI show in Beijing. This will mark the first time BC Wood is attending the 3-day conference and we look forward to making new contacts and gathering market intelligence about China’s building and construction sector.
