lanceYou have probably already heard from news that this Chinese New Year is special because foreign media is debating whether the year of 2015 should be sheep, goat or ram? 12 years ago (the Chinese Zodiac is also 12 years cycle) this could not happen and now it does because China is continuously becoming a very important and prosperous market that for many nations.

One week before the Chinese New Year Eve, Canada Wood and FII invited over 60 guests from government, developers and building and design industry to attend a New Year Party at DHC. Rick Jeffery, Paul Newman from Canada Wood and Michael Loseth from FII were also invited to give welcome speech to the audience. At the event, a very clear message was delivered to the China market that starting from now Canada Wood and FII are now evolving in stages to work as one seamless team.

A leading green building expert in China was invited to give a presentation on wood’s opportunity in green building industry in China market. The event provided the local industry and government a great opportunity to mix with Canadian industry reps to exchange ideas about the future of WFC development in China.
