On October 12, 2011 the Montreal Economic Institute, in cooperation with the Canada China Business Council, hosted a business luncheon in Montreal with Felix Chee, Chief Representative to Canada of the China Investment Corporation. This was a unique occasion for Quebec-China, and indeed Canada-China, investment relations.
China Investment Corporation (CIC) is one of the world’s largest sovereign wealth funds, charged with managing a portion of China’s huge foreign exchange reserves. Established in 2007, it currently manages a portfolio of more than USD 300 billion in equity, fixed income, and alternative assets. CIC’s Representative Office in Toronto is the centre for its North American investment activities and, aside from Hong Kong, is its first presence outside China.
