Our Client Testimony
Canadian Tour and Agritour to China 2010:
China Agri-business tour Feb 2009:
SRI Inc. enrolled the services of the Canada-China Agriculture and Food Development Exchange Centre (CCAgr) in early 2009. Our mission was to develop networks and relationships with government and academic entities and explore technology and personnel exchange opportunities between Universities and Industries.
Youming Zhao and his team were instrumental in assisting SRI Inc. in achieving every mission objective while in China. Zhao’s contacts run strong and wide throughout China and his understanding of the culture and language enriched our experience.
We look forward to continue working with the CCAgr and our new friends in China during the coming months and years ahead.

China Agri-business tour October，2008
Mr. Zhao and I travelled to China in October, 2008 to explore opportunities and to meet many of the key government and private sector players.
I was deeply impressed by his ability to move within people there. It was obvious that important people in China had great respect for him and were eager to work with him through the Canada-China Agriculture and Food Development Centre.
On this one short trip we identified two opportunities for sharing Canadian technology and expertise that would be of potential benefit to Canadian farmers in the supply managed sectors.
Mr.Zhao has lots of contacts in China plus the knowledge of Chinese language and culture which will enable him to bridge the gap between China and Canada.
