July 15, 2009

Fresh from the return of a successful mission to China, CATA VP Kevin Wennekes invites you to join him in a national teleconference call with Sonny Chaiwala, the CTO of PacketDNA and Golden Qiu, CTO of LongKeySoft Technology Inc. headquartered in Wuxi, China, to discuss the real opportunities being made available to any size of Canadian company through the unique business portal established between CATA and China industry and government partners.

The call will relate Mr. Chaiwala’s experience in this delegation – from preventative quarantine through to a successful signing of an agreement with Longkey – and provide his personal insights into the very real opportunities for Canadian companies in China as being offered through the China portal.

“By the end of the mission, I had come to an agreement with the LongKey CEO to begin immediate work on one of at least eight different business streams: with projects ranging from providing basic web design needs to ones with the potential to result in co-development and co-marketing of a new line of commercial software products,” explains Mr. Chaiwala. “If a small company such as mine can benefit, any Canadian company should be able to do the same.”

Following Sonny’s first-hand accounts, Golden Qiu will provide a web-enabled presentation offering more details on the CATA-Wuxi portal and explaining precisely how any sized Canadian company at any stage in their China strategy can realize business opportunities in China, including market entry, product support, sourcing, co-development and partnership searches.

Finally, Kevin will reveal details on future China initiatives, including information on upcoming Canadian Pavilion trade-show opportunities, unique China service offerings, and more information on the next delegation to Wuxi planned for mid-September.

Callers will have an opportunity to engage in Q&A following the presentations. Some specific answers expected to be provided include:
  • Yes, any size of company can hope to engage with China through this portal.
  • No, your business requirements are never too small.
  • Yes, you can start growing your own China team starting with one person alone.
  • CATA and its partners understand how to do business in both countries – we bridge the cultural divide.
  • Your IP will be safe – there are many means by which to protect you The briefing will be of special interest to any Canadian company with interests in China and at any stage in their China strategy – especially those who may not yet have a strategy even developed.

Participation in this call is free but limited spaces are available. Please register online before July 20 at 5 p.m. EST to reserve a place on the call.
