Net Result: Three Times The Flights By 2008
When China's president visits Ottawa
at the end of the week, he'll do so with pen in hand, ready to sign
a series of aviation agreements that will triple flights between
the two countries by 2008.
That's the word from Canadian Transport Minister Jean Lapierre,
who told The AFX News Service, "This agreement is going to multiply
by three the number of flights between Canada and China over the
next few years."
Lapierre didn't talk about actual numbers, but said he expects
the number of ethnic Chinese in Vancouver and Toronto, which
escalated remarkably just before Britain handed Hong Kong over to
the Chinese in 1997, will make increased flights (both cargo and
passenger) profitable for both countries.
In addition, Canada wants "approved destination status" from
"That would also -- in our estimation -- increase the number of
Chinese people coming to Canada from 87,000 this year to something
like 250,000 over the next few years," he said.
The aviation agreements, which could well be approved at the
presidential level by the end of the week, would see Bombardier
bring in Chinese partners on its C-series aircraft. Again, Lapierre
was tight-lipped on the details, hinting more information would be
forthcoming by the end of the week.
