Focus on Trade and Investment Opportunities for Agri-Food Sector
Minister Jeff Leal and Minister Michael Chan announced they will be leading a trade mission to China in April 2015. The mission will focus on increasing opportunities for Ontario’s agriculture and agri-food sector in the Chinese market.
The mission will build on the success of Ontario’s agri-food exporters in China and introduce a new group of companies to this important market. It will also support and strengthen government-to-government and business-to-business connections created during Premier Wynne’s successful 2014 China Trade Mission.
The trip will run from April 16th to 25th, 2015 and will include visits to Shanghai, Beijing, Nanjing, Shouguang and Hong Kong.
The mission is part of Ontario’s Going Global Trade Strategy to help the province’s businesses – particularly small- to medium- sized enterprises – expand into priority markets such as China.
Helping Ontario’s agri-food businesses compete globally is part of the government’s plan for Ontario. The four-part plan is building Ontario up by investing in people’s talents and skills, building new public infrastructure like roads and transit, creating a dynamic, supportive environment where business thrives and building a secure savings plan so everyone can afford to retire.
