The recent multiple-entry visa having validity of up to 10 years is set to simplify travel, lessen the expense and bring down the delays and time spent to make journeys to China. This move will have a direct advantage on the business class in Canada who shuttles between the two countries on a regular basis in order to give a fillip to exports. Also receiving the benefit would be visitors and Canadian citizens who would like to pay a visit to their family, bolstering human ties.
Canadian nationals can submit their applications for the recent multiple-entry visa to the Chinese authorities and consulates. China is a major market for Canada under the Global Markets Action Plan, which is the government’s plan for creating employment and success through the medium of exports. China is also the second-biggest trade partner of Canada, with a two-fold way for its commercial goods trade amounting to an estimated 78 billion dollars in 2014.
In the year 2014, China stood as the second-biggest export market of Canada. The total value of exports was nearly 19.3 billion dollars that were 45.7% higher over a five-year period. New trade offices were recently started by Canada in China for providing more base support to Canada’s businesses. Overall, there was a total of 100 trade commissioners and 15 offices.
The improvised China-Canada Agreement on Air Transport has aided the air traffic between both the countries by increasing it to approximately 14% between the years 2013-14 in a bid to attain nearly 1.5 million passenger trips in totality. This move will boost trade and tourism between both the nations as it makes travelling easier for genuine visitors. More the ease of travel, more will be the strengthened human ties, travel and business.
