As an expert in water research, Rimeh highlighted the importance of sustainable development. Canada possesses abundant water resources, accounting for 20% globally. It is critical to use water more efficiently. Measures should be taken to reduce water pollution, conserve water, and improve the efficiency of hydroelectric power generation.

Jocelyn is a senior real estate broker with years of experience in the industry, she pointed out that Quebec still has excellent real estate investment opportunities. Inflation is temporary, and interest rates will not remain high indefinitely. With an increase in available housing supply and relatively lower prices, it is a good timing for buyers to invest in the market. The most popular properties for investment are vacation lots, chalets, condos, and single-family homes in the suburbs of Montreal.
As the deputy director of the Canada China Business Council, David mentions that Quebec offers a favourable investment environment and policies, maintaining a stable and friendly relationship with China. Quebec holds a leading position globally in aerospace, green building, gaming industry, and life sciences, exerting significant influence in China as well.
