Canada making push to increase number of Chinese tourists, students

The Globe and Mail writes:

Canada is making efforts to massively increase numbers of Chinese tourists and students as the federal government presses forward its rapprochement with the world’s second-largest economy. “Canada can easily double or triple or quadruple the numbers” of Chinese visitors, Ahmed Hussen, Minister of Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship, said in an interview in Beijing Thursday. And “we’ll do whatever we can” to increase the ranks of Chinese students, who already make up 32 per cent of the international cohort in Canadian schools, Mr. Hussen said.

How do you think attracting Chinese students helps to strengthen Canada’s industry or society? Please leave your thoughts in the comment section below.
