A new five year federal-provincial funding agreement has been reached with Regina’s Agribition for market development.
Agriculture minister David Marit says Agribition will receive up to 100 thousand dollars a year for the next five years.
Marit was part of the opening ceremonies at Agribition.
Marit says Agribition is looking to increase the number of registered buyers at the annual show and conduct outgoing missions to high value markets.
Agribition this week will attract over one thousand visitors from 80 countries.
Total attendance is expected to surpass 120 thousand.
