On June 28th, 2021, CCC’s President and CEO Bobby Kwon joined Minister Mary Ng and Chief Trade Commissioner Sara Wilshaw at the Team Canada Southeast Asia Infrastructure Forum, as part of a whole-of-government approach to promoting trade with Canada. Hosted by the Canada-ASEAN Business Council (CABC) in partnership with the Government of Canada, the three day virtual forum sought to advance the growing commercial relationship between Canada and Southeast Asia.
Southeast Asian countries account for over 50% of the almost $70 trillion of global infrastructure investment. To promote Canadian infrastructure technologies and expertise to decision-makers across the region, Bobby introduced forum attendees to Canada’s signature G2G contracting solution that brings qualified Canadian companies to government buyers – CCC’s International Prime Contractor Program.
In his remarks, Bobby explained that “Through this contracting structure, the risks associated with international procurement are significantly reduced, since every contract signed by CCC has the legal effect of being signed in the name of the Government of Canada, providing government buyers with the assurance that the contract will be delivered in accordance with the agreed terms and conditions.”
He also underscored that “Our approach has helped deliver projects of national importance. Recently, CCC worked with Aecon, a global leader in construction and infrastructure development to bring Canadian expertise and technology to the development of a new world class terminal of Bermuda’s L.F. Wade International Airport.”
