It's the second largest harbour in the world, yet the Port of Halifax is far from being considered one of the busiest. However, its importance to the city and the region could be significant as a generator of economic growth. It needs a kick start, and now during this downturn may be just the time.

In AIMS’ latest paper, Give a Plum for a Peach: Chinese Business Immigration to Atlantic Canada, author John Huang takes a specific look at what needs to be done to encourage business immigration from China. He says the region has to let more people in, let them in faster, and let them do more things when they get here.
