Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 28, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta THE IETH5R1DGE HERAID Wednesday, June 28, 1972 Open Canddd's (rude fair Sharp expected to visit China JOHN' HEST i Some here suspect that pro- OTTAWA f CP1 External 1 portionately as many citizens of Affairs Minister Mitchell Sharp' is expected to visit China this summer to officially opeti the Canadian trade fair in Peking. The fair, largest solo trade exposition ever staged by Cau- ada abroad, runs tor (wo weeks from Aug. 21. At about the same time, Pai llslang-Kuo. Chinese foreign trade minister, will be in Canada to visit the People's Republic's first-ever display at the Canadian Na- tional Exhibition in Toronto. The reciprocal visits symbol- ize a pattern of growing travel contact1; between Canada ami China one year and eight months after the two countries formally established diplomatic relations. Most of the travel falls into one of two categories: official or semi-official, and business. There is no tourist travel as such in either direction. By almost any standard of in- ternational travel, the move- ment is only a (rickle. The flow of Chinese to Canada is even smaller than the modest flew of Canadians going the other way. Nevertheless, the movement is an expanding one. In the last half of last year, 750 Canadians passed through Hong usual transit route to China. Tins year 500 to 600, mostly business- men, are expected to go in for the trade fair alone; the United Stales, which hasn't yet officially recognized Peking, arc getting into mainland China as not more. There is no way of verifying tlu's, The Chinesc embassy in Ottawa is known lo have re- ceived a flood of visa applica- tions, from Americans as well as Canadians, since opening its rtoors 17 months ago, But embassy spokes iVi en refuse to say how many have been received or how many granted. The great bulk of the applications are forwarded to Peking where they go to the bottom of a stack of similar ap- plications from all over tho world, with little hope of ever being acted upon. The limited number of suc- cessful ones are from prese- lected candidates and are screened from the others here, for action by the embassy's visa section, Only the occasional would-be traveller who applies without some kind of prelimi- nary approach, ever ends up with a visa, it is said, Chinese officials say their country has neither the facilities to accommodate large numbers of tourists nor the desire to make money from tourism. Nevertheless, (hey strongly support what they call "people- to-people and appear lo regard every visit in cither i In addition. Opposition Leader direction, for whatever purpose, Robert Slanfield has had a visit as an important event in the de- velopment of cultural relations. Canadians wiio get into China normally are taken on limited sightseeing excursions beyond the scope of their immediate as- signments. They may be shown a rural commune, or factories, or taken lo see the Great Wall. Senator Donald Cameron (L who headed a 24- memher delegation from the Banff School of Advanced Busi- ness in April, says lie wrote the program for the journey through China and his hosts ac- cepted it. The delegation visited Canton, ShjnHJhni, Nanking ami Peking, aisfl inspected industrial sites, a medical institute, schools and universities, workers villages and stores. Though shepherded by guides most of the time, members of (he (our also had opportunities to wander about cities on their own, said Senator Cameron. He described the China Travel Service, which arranged the tour, as "one of (he most effi- cient to deal with." Other Canadian groups that have entered China in the last year or so include a badminton team, a table tennis team, Hamilton high school students, two university groups and a del- egation representing the Cana- dian Importers Association.. and there have been federal and Ontario government trade dele- gations. A number of individual businessmen and a few scien- tists, also have made the hip. Chinese coming to Canada in- variably travel in groups. Table tennis and badminton teams, a computer analysis group, physi- cists and a metallurgists delega- tion have made the journey thus far.
