The Asia Pacific Foundation of Canada is proud to announce the 2021 virtual launch of its annual APF Canada Investment Monitor signature report, which delves into the foreign direct investment (FDI) relationship between Canada and the Asia Pacific.
The launch coincides with the online release of new data through investmentmonitor.ca, allowing Canadians to use our data visualization tool to uncover novel stories about the Canada-Asia Pacific investment relationship.
By harnessing primary sources and in-depth research, the Investment Monitor informs Canadian policy-making and public discourse on Canada’s economic relations with the Asia Pacific at a time when engagement is sorely needed for post-pandemic economic recovery. The investment landscape is shifting as COVID-19 continues to pose a threat to the world economy, and APF Canada’s tracking provides an outlook of where these potential opportunities lie.
The 2021 report, "Post-COVID Recovery and Foreign Direct Investment Between Canada and the Asia Pacific", explores how South Korea, India, Australia, and Singapore envision their post-COVID economies and how these visions may present investment opportunities for Canada, specifically in digital, green, and research and development-engaged sectors. We invite you to join us as we take stock of the current Canada-Asia investment relationship and examine the importance of strategic engagement going forward.
This project is completed in partnership with The School of Public Policy at the University of Calgary and with sponsorship from the Government of British Columbia, Export Development Canada, and Invest in Canada.
