BC Ministers to Visit Asia to Strengthen Ties, Advance Trade

British Columbia’s Minister of Jobs, Trade and Technology, Bruce Ralston, and George Chow, BC Minister of State for Trade, will travel to Japan and South Korea from March 16-22, 2019, to strengthen trade and investment ties, and to expand economic opportunities for businesses in B.C. British Columbia is the first Canadian province to send a trade minister to Japan since the Comprehensive and Progressive Agreement for Trans-Pacific Partnership (CPTPP) went into effect in December 2018. This mission will open up opportunities for B.C. exporters under the CPTPP and the Canada-Korea Free Trade Agreement. Japan is B.C.’s third-largest trading partner at C$4.5 billion in goods exports in 2017, while South Korea is B.C.’s fourth-largest goods export market, with C$2.9 billion in exports in 2017.
