OCC Encourages Inclusion of Nuclear Industry in Canada-China Economic Complementarities Study

    The Ontario Chamber of Commerce (OCC) wrote a letter to the Minister of International Trade, Ed Fast, regarding the recently released Canada-China Economic Complementarities Study.

    In its letter, the OCC encouraged the federal government to include the nuclear industry under the clean technology and environmental goods and services category of the study, and in future discussions of Canada-China economic complementarities.

    The Canadian nuclear industry supports 33,000 Canadian jobs, while the two CANDU reactors at Qinshan represent the single largest Canadian export initiative in China.
    The Study provides a broad overview of the Canadian and Chinese economies and bilateral trade relations. It also examines seven economic sectors in greater depth, including:
    agriculture and agri-food
    clean technology and environmental goods and services
    machinery and equipment
    natural resources and derived products
    transportation infrastructure and aerospace
    textiles and related goods
