Chinese VC Prefers Canada

When asked why he chose to emigrate to Canada even though he still runs his business in the Chinese mainland, Michael Li gave a simple answer: “protection.”

Li, who works in venture capital, told the Global Times that the environment, food safety, social welfare and relatively small population in Canada give him a feeling of security and peace.

“But China has millions of money-making opportunities,” said Li, adding that he is not alone in seeing China as a place for business, but overseas countries as a place to live.
