INDePth is proud to announce our keynote speaker for the 2013 China Conference, David Mulroney, the former Canadian Ambassador to the People’s Republic of China. This is a rare opportunity to meet one of our country’s most distinguished diplomat in the Asia-Pacific region, and also to listen to someone who has extensive, hands-on experience in the field of international politics.
David Mulroney has been called one of Canada’s most innovative ambassadors by Janice Stein, the Director of the Munk School of Global Affairs. He was appointed as the Canadian Ambassador to the People’s Republic of China in 2009 and has significantly improved the depth of Sino-Canadian relations. Prior to his appointment, Mr. Mulroney was assigned to the Privy Council Office in Ottawa as the Deputy Minister responsible for the Afghanistan Task Force. Mr. Mulroney’s other assignments included serving as the Associate Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs, as the Prime Minister’s Personal Representative to the G8 Summit, and as PM’s Foreign and Defense Policy Advisor. Experienced in foreign affairs, Mr. Mulroney served oversea extensively in places like Taiwan, China, Korea, and Malaysia. His front-line experience in China will be invaluable to INDePth, giving our participants first hand insight into Canadian-Chinese relations and providing an exciting start to our conference. Don’t miss this rare opportunity!
