A team of Saskatchewan representatives, including Premier Scott Moe, have returned from China after a recent business trip.
Trade and carbon capture were discussed with the Chinese government, as well as several large businesses in the Asian country.
Moe said he promoted all of what Saskatchewan has to offer, including newer products the province isn’t known for quite yet.
“We see the soybean acreage in Saskatchewan starting to increase, and there’s tremendous opportunities for the country of Canada and the province of Saskatchewan to increase our exports of products like soybeans into the Chinese market as well in years ahead.”
Moe said the trip to China was not made in reference to difficult NAFTA negotiations.
“It was scheduled because China is a very important trading partner, that is of increasing importance to the province of Saskatchewan,” Moe said. “It was not scheduled because of where we are with NAFTA, but I think it’s indicative of the importance of all of our trading partners around the world.”
More trips are on the way for Premier Moe, including at least one more trip to the States and a trip to India before the calendar year ends.
