  • Description

    Participating this year at the Canadian National Exhibition in Ontario for the first time, the People's Republic of China has put on display a wide range of produce, industrial machinery and examples of Chinese artistic and scientific endeavour....to present the first large-scale foreign exhibit in the history of the C.N.E.

    Chinese Trade Minister Pai Hsiank-kuo travelled especially to Ontario to open his country's exhibit on Wednesday (16 August), while Canadian External Affairs Minister Mitchell Sharp is in Peking to officially launch a large Canadian trade exhibition there.

    Trade between the People's Republic of China and Canada is extensive, although the two exhibitions....and talks the various visiting foreign ministers are having with their counterparts....could serve the purpose of correcting the heavy trade imbalance in Canada's favour. Her exports to China amounted to $204 million last year, while Canadian purchases from the Chinese totalled only $24 million. Ninety-five per cent of Canadian sales to China in 1971 were accounted for by wheat.

    Mr. Pai Hsiank-kuo is the first Chinese minister to make an official visit to Canada. He and his delegation were given a warm welcome at the exhibition hall in Ontario Place by Canada's Minister of Industry, Trade and Commerce, Mr. Jean-Luc Pepin:-
