This summer Pashv Shah, a third-year Western student, will join 35 of Canada’s top young leaders traveling to China on a Junior Team Canada Trade Mission, sponsored by Global Vision. He and his fellow young Canadians will represent their communities and country this August on a delegation which will take them half way around the world. This summer’s mission will focus on building connections between Canadian and Chinese business, government, community and cultural organizations.

A key part of Shah’s experience is obtaining mandates or missions from organizations in the southwestern Ontario and Western communities so he may be to provide direct benefit to those organizations. Partners will make a financial contribution toward the mission in exchange for information, research, contacts and connections in the Chinese marketplace.

“My role as an ambassador is to represent the interest of local companies in the international market and provide these companies with market research, information and access to contacts, all of which will be developed or gathered from my time in China,” Shah said. “I want to help Canadian-owned or -grown manufacturing companies expand so they can invest in more employment in both Canada and elsewhere.”

Shah was selected from a group of 650 who participated in the Economic Round Table series from coast to coast to coast. The mission departs late July with a return date in mid August.
