（Speech of Mr. Shang Feng）
During the meeting, Mr. Shang Feng mainly elaborated on two aspects in view of the issue of Canadian listing value that everyone is concerned about.
First of all, the listing of Canada is a “half step ladder” for Chinese companies to move towards US/Hong Kong stocks. Mr. Shang Feng particularly stressed that the listing of Canada is only the first step in overseas listing. At present, the dream exchanges of Chinese companies listed on the sea are still US stocks and Hong Kong stocks. However, most companies directly enter the US/Hong Kong stocks and the difficulty is too large. The Inter-Judicial Disclosure System (MJDS), signed with US stocks/Hong Kong stocks, gives companies the ability to switch to US/Hong Kong stocks more simply when the time is right.
Secondly, companies with large R&D investment in bio-pharmaceuticals, clean technology and renewable energy, and the Canadian government's R&D tax rebate policy also make many domestic companies with actual R&D needs very interested. Mr. Shang Feng made a conclusion : "Very generous policy, plus Canadian (including Canada Permanent Residence) major shareholder enterprise, plus 60% of the government's investment in research and development, non-Canadian large shareholder enterprises, plus 40% of the government's return on research and development investment."
On the basis of the above two aspects, Mr. Shang Feng also elaborated on other practical needs of Chinese enterprises, such as the demand for industrial upgrading, relying on Canada's strong technology research and development strength, industrial upgrading and technological iteration, so that these enterprises do not need any transformation and still can shining and developing. If the policy allows, the enterprise project can be reasonably transferred to the policy support encouragement area, such as blockchain projects, North America allows and it is sought after by investment institutions. Moreover, the global immigration policy Under the tight environment, overseas entrepreneurship has become an effective way for business owners and their family to obtain immigration status in developed countries.
Canada BIZFIELD Angel Network helps Chinese entrepreneurs and investors to complete the whole process of North American business incubation, investment, financing and listing.
