During the keynote speech at the "Annual Chinese Investment in Canada Forum: A New Era of Canada-China Trade Relations". Ambassador Lu introduced China's economic situation and the development of China-Canada relations in a comprehensive way and pointed out China's increasing importance for Canada. In order to better enhance the level and scale of cooperation between China and Canada, the two sides should strive in the following four aspects. First, to really treat each other as equal partners, and adhere to equal treatment, mutual benefit as well as win-win results. Second, to view the cooperation from a strategic and long-term perspective and strengthen the top-level design. Third, should have the ambition to make the cooperation bigger and stronger and actively promote it to the high-end. Fourth, to inform Canadian people of the benefits brought by China-Canada cooperation in a bid to foster a friendly environment for further cooperation.

In his discussions with representatives of local Chinese community and Chinese companies, Ambassador Lu briefed on the development of China-Canada relations and fully affirmed the positive efforts made by local Chinese community and Chinese companies in building a harmonious overseas Chinese community, promoting Chinese culture and accelerating China-Canada friendship. And he hoped everyone could continue to give play to the spirit of being the master of their own affairs, strengthen solidarity, abide by the law, take root in their work, and actively participate in politics, so as to make new contributions to enhancing mutual understanding between Chinese and Canadian people and promote China-Canada relations in a healthy and long-term way. The representatives spoke enthusiastically at the discussions, and thanked the Chinese Embassy for its long-term care. They also talked about their feelings of working and living in Canada, and put forward insightful suggestions on China-Canada economic and trade cooperations as well as on people-to-people  exchanges.
