I think that Canada needs to work with like-minded countries to form a critical mass of diplomacy, economic resources and other resources to ensure that any kind of engagement with China is more symmetrical. A critical aspect of dealing with China is that there are asymmetrical advantages in terms of economic size, in terms of its diplomatic size and other advantages. That means that smaller countries are always in a position of disadvantage. Importantly, we need to move forward and work with like-minded countries to advocate for Canadian values and a rules-based approach to dealing with China.
