On February 15, 2022, the Crafts Cluster team visited the Dubai Expo. Besides the general marketing activities and building potential future business relationships, we also saw the Canadian investors’ section and learned about them and the opportunities for expanding investment in Canada. It was very important and beneficial for us to deepen our knowledge of the Canadian heritage and its fertile investment work environment within the field of our company’s work.

We also checked out a number of the international pavilions from around the world, the latest handicraft products representing multiple cultures, and the latest environmentally friendly materials from around the world.
