On September 1, 2016, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau witnessed the signature of 56 new contracts and agreements between Canadian and Chinese companies and institutions during his first official visit to China. The Asian Business & Management Program at York University’s Schulich Executive Education Centre, and the Beijing Institute of Education signed a new Memorandum of Understanding. This five-year agreement—worth CA$ 5 million—is aimed at renewing and expanding education training programs offered by York University in China and Canada to local school teachers, school administrators and principals in China. ABMP is a program housed at the York Centre for Asian Research.
