Premier Kathleen Wynne will lead a delegation to China and Vietnam this fall to strengthen trade partnerships and promote Ontario as a key centre for investment and innovation. Premier Wynne made the announcement in Toronto at the headquarters of green technology company Nanoleaf.
This is the first-ever Ontario Premier"s mission to Vietnam, and Premier Wynne"s third mission to China.
The Premier"s mission will begin on November 23 in Beijing, China, with further stops in Nanjing, Chongqing, Shenzhen and Hong Kong. On December 3, the Premier and delegates will travel to Vietnam to meet with key business leaders and government officials in Ho Chi Minh City and Hanoi. These meetings will be an opportunity to promote Ontario as an ideal trading partner and one of the best places in the world to invest and open up new markets for Ontario businesses.
As part of Ontario"s strategy to forge diverse trading relationships around the globe and create opportunities for businesses at home, this mission will focus on exploring further partnerships in the medical technologies, science and technology, and agri-food sectors. A delegation of Ontario businesses will join the Premier on several stops throughout the mission, and can express their interest in joining as a business delegate.
Attracting international investment and helping the province"s businesses compete globally is part of the government"s plan to create jobs, grow our economy and help people in their everyday lives.
