Canada builds on China trade

Chinese President Hu Jintao wrapped up a day-long state visit to the nation's capital June 24 by inking new trade deals that will let Chinese tourists come to Canada and see Canadian beef in China, reported The Toronto Sun. Combined, the deals will mean hundreds of millions of dollars of new business for Canadian firms and farmers. The Chinese government will let Chinese tourists visit Canada almost immediately, a move long sought by successive Canadian governments. This could boost Canada's tourist industry by $100-million-a-year.
