Atlantic Canada Trade Mission to Bolster Trade Links to China

A federal-provincial Canadian trade mission is heading to China this week with hopes of bolstering Atlantic Canada's presence in one of the world's largest consumer markets. Federal Agriculture Minister Lawrence McAulay, Treasury Board president Scott Brison, and the premiers of Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island, and Newfoundland and Labrador will join more than 70 businesses and organizations participating in trade shows and business-to-business meetings. For Nova Scotia Premier Stephen McNeil, this will be the second trip to China this year – and his sixth trip overall. According to federal government, exports to China from Atlantic Canada grew 37 per cent last year to more than C$1.5 billion, with seafood exports having doubled in the past five years alone.
