    The Asia Pacific Foundation of Canada invites you to the launch of its 2019 National Opinion Poll: Canadian Views on High-Tech Investment from Asia on June 12, 2019 in Vancouver.

    As the U.S.-China tech war and the global Huawei crisis continue, Canada finds itself at a crossroads of how to harness the vast potential of Asian investment in Canadian technology while safeguarding national security and Canadian values.

    Our 2019 National Opinion Poll (NOP) provides a nuanced understanding of the public sentiment toward Asian investment in Canada’s high-tech sector, a core economic driver of tomorrow. The NOP highlights the driving forces of an overall skepticism as well as room and opportunities for further engagement with Asia in this critical sector.
