OTTAWA, October 16, 2015 – Languages Canada, the association representing Canada’s 225 accredited language education programs, is proud to announce that it will soon lead a delegation of member programs on a trade mission to China and Vietnam.
From November 22 to 27, 2015, representatives of Languages Canada and its member programs will be present in China and Vietnam to meet with key educational agencies, top local schools and government representatives. The association is working closely with BOSSA (Beijing Overseas Study Services Association) in China and the top agencies in Vietnam to promote ESL programs in Canada.
“We know that China is among the fastest growing markets in the sector based on emerging data from several key sources,” explains Gonzalo Peralta, Executive Director of Languages Canada. “We look forward to working with top agencies in these countries to enhance student mobility and to increase the number of agents in this region that focus on Canada.”
Languages Canada trade missions offer members the opportunity to meet top agents in some of the highest performing markets in language education. Twelve Languages Canada member programs will take part in this mission, made possible thanks to the support of the Government of Canada’s Global Opportunities for Associations program.
“China and Vietnam are considered among the most important markets for language education in Canada. We hope to be able to work with partners there to make Canada a leading study destination for their students,” says Charbel Moreno, Manager of International Affairs and Marketing for Languages Canada.
As part of an ambitious international marketing strategy, Languages Canada ensures Canada is engaged in partnerships with institutions and governments around the world to deliver on their promise of internationally recognized language education.
Last year, Languages Canada led several collaborative trade missions to Russia, Spain, Kazakhstan, China and Vietnam, and now this year to China, Vietnam, Turkey and Mexico in 2016.
