The Saskatchewan entourage says they had a busy day in Qingdao Wednesday.
It is a Chinese city of nearly nine-million people and a major industrial centre with one of the busiest trading ports in the world.
The Premier met with some of China’s top buyers of Saskatchewan products, as well as Qingdao’s mayor.
Brad Wall also signed agreements to further cooperate on goods transportation, education opportunities and trade relations.
Saskatchewan exports to China have doubled over the past five years.
The intent of the trip is to help open up opportunities for our exporters in this growth market.
Wall says the trade mission will cost about 130 thousand dollars and includes almost two dozen exporters and industry groups.
