The Canadian Government has announced that Dominic Barton will be the next ambassador to Beijing, a move which will end a months-long gap without a top diplomat in the country. Mr. Barton has been a prominent Canadian figure in China and in international economic affairs, with a long career at consultancy firm McKinsey & Company, where he served as global managing partner for nine years. Mr. Barton chaired the Advisory Council on Economic Growth and has worked directly for Chinese interests, as a member of the advisory board for the China Development Bank Capital Group and as an adjunct professor at Tsinghua University.
