Saskatchewan Trade and Export Development Minister Jeremy Harrison heading out on a week-long trade mission

Saskatchewan’s Trade and Export Development Minister is heading to Japan and South Korea for a trade mission.

Jeremy Harrison is taking off today (Fri) and will be there until next Friday (Feb. 10).

The province says the mission will focus on promoting Saskatchewan’s natural resources sector as well as highlight the importance of partnerships in food security and energy transition.

Saskatchewan exports more than $1.5-billion to Japan and South Korea, according to the provincial government.

In a news release, Harrison says they’ve seen increased trade to these markets over the last 5 years, and this mission can reinforce their reputation as a strong, reliable trade partner.

Saskatchewan has trade offices in Mexico, the United Kingdom, United Arab Emirates, India, Singapore, Vietnam, China, and Japan, and recently established one in Germany.
