With the growing uncertainty in world trade, the Chinese market is becoming increasing important to Saskatchewan.
That, from Premier Scott Moe on his return from a trade mission to China along with industry representatives.
The trade delegation met with current and potential investors in the value-added agriculture sector and the Premier met with Chinese government officials to look at identifying opportunities for both countries in mining and agriculture.
An MOU was signed between the Carbon Capture and Storage Knowledge Centre and the China Petroleum University to advance the study of using carbon capture for enhanced oil recovery.
Cameco’s CEO was a part of the business delegation and accompanied the Premier in meetings with a number of Chinese nuclear agencies to talk about more exports of Saskatchewan’s uranium.
Tim Gitzel says China is a critical market for Cameco, as the world’s fastest growing producer of nuclear energy.
