Federal agriculture minister Lawrence MacAulay will host a trade mission next week to Southeast Asia.
MacAulay will leave Sunday for a 13-day trade mission to Vietnam and India.
The mission is an effort to expand Canadian trade in the Asia-Pacific region.
MacAulay will meet with his counterparts in Vietnam and India as well as industry leaders to discuss new opportunities in key Asian markets.
He will be accompanies by a group of Canadian industry associations representing a variety of agriculture sectors.
Canada exported more than 261 million dollars in farm and fish products to Vietnam last year and more than 1.2 billion dollars worth of farm and fish products to India last year.
MacAulay’s trade mission leaves on February 26th and returns on March 10th.
A dispute over pulse crop trade with India is expected to be among the key issues raised during the trade mission.
