Saskatchewan’s trade and export development minister is to lead a delegation to Japan and South Korea this week to explore new trade opportunities.
Jeremy Harrison will be leading the delegation, the provincial government announced Thursday. The mission will focus on promoting natural resources like uranium and helium, and will also “highlight the importance of partnerships in food security and energy transition.”
The delegation is to depart Friday and return in a week on Feb. 10.
Harrison said strong relationships with international trading partners are crucial to the provincial economy.
“Saskatchewan has seen increased trade to these markets over the last five years, and this mission can reinforce our capacity as a strong, reliable partner into the future,” Harrison said in a statement.
Saskatchewan’s annual exports to Japan and South Korea total more than $1.5 billion, the provincial government said.
Mark Cooper, CEO of Prairie Clean Energy, will also be joining the delegation. He said the mission is an opportunity to further Saskatchewan’s role as a leader in sustainable bioenergy.
“Saskatchewan is one of the most sustainable producers on Earth and we need to capitalize on the opportunity,” Cooper said in a statement.
