The China Entrepreneur Club has been called the world’s most exclusive, with 50 members comprising billionaires who oversee companies that together make up $600 billion (Canadian) annual turnover.

The group are planning their first trip to Canada in an eight-day tour in which they hope to make business deals.  The visit comes as Canada seeks a new “golden” era where businesses hope to connect.
