Financial giant Fosun is on the prime minister’s list. The Chinese company surprises with its appetite on the international stage. In recent years, the company has acquired med clubs and several insurance companies and now holds a 20% stake in Cirque du Soleil.

“We know that Fosun has opportunities around the world,” said Finance Minister Bill Morneau. We talked about our situation in Canada and the level of people [main-d’œuvre] which the company has access to if it invests with us. »

No specific area of ​​activity has been targeted, assures Minister Morneau. This is just an initial meeting to explore business opportunities. “It is important,” he added, “to have foreign investors if we want to achieve a good level of economic activity in Canada.” »
