Education in Canada-Asia Relations
Published: December 03, 2012 in Points of View Asia Pacific (33 pages)
In this survey, Canadians engaged in Asia were asked to examine different dimensions of Canada-Asia relations when it comes to education, and the role it might play in helping Canada build closer relations with Asian countries. According to the results, 8-in-10 practitioners consider education to be the most critical component of any strategy to build closer relations with Asian countries. However, Canadians’ ‘Asia competency’ has been found lacking with 60% of Asia practitioners noting the difficulty of finding qualified Canadians with sufficient Asia knowledge to help their companies succeed in Asia. This survey was sponsored by Cathay Pacific Airways.
