Lee, Selinger embark on trade mission to China

  • Print

Lt.-Gov. Philip Lee and Premier Greg Selinger leave for a 10-day trade mission to China today.

Manitoba's exports to China have grown elevenfold in the last decade, from $79 million a decade ago to nearly a billion dollars today, the premier said in a news release.

The mission will include stops in Beijing, Shanghai and Hong Kong, where Lee was born, and the World Economic Forum in Tianjin.

Manitoba's business delegation includes representatives from CanEquip Consulting, the Composites Innovation Centre, HyLife, the Keystone Potato Producers Association, Myers Norris Penny, OmniTRAX Canada and the Churchill Gateway Development Corporation, Palliser Furniture, Parker Hannifin and Risun Connexions. CentrePort Canada, the country's first foreign trade zone, will also have representatives there.

"Building on our well-established transportation network of air, rail, truck and sea routes, CentrePort is key to our long-term strategy of establishing Manitoba as a North American hub of international trade," Selinger is quoted as saying in the press release.
