Dr. David Mulroney says “We like to say that the world needs more Canada. But it is actually going to get more Chine – a lot more!” Drawing on three decades of diplomatic experience in Asia, David Mulroney explains how China’s rise is reverberating across Canada. He encourages us to respond with skill and confidence, making smart policy choices to promote our prosperity, our security, and, equally important, our values.
