Brad Wall China Trade Mission: Saskatchewan Premier Headed To Asia


SASKATOON - Saskatchewan Premier Brad Wall is headed to China on a trade mission.

Wall leaves Saturday to the Asia, with stops in Hong Kong, Singapore, Indonesia, and China.

He says Saskatchewan is in a unique position with the amount of resources such as potash, oil and uranium able to be exported to the region.

Wall will join Alberta Premier Alison Redford and B.C. Premier Christy Clark to address the World Economic Forum's meeting of the new champions.

Then he will travel to Indonesia, to meet with its ministers of agriculture, and trade.

Indonesia is Saskatchewan's fifth largest export market, with major exports of potash, wheat, and semi-chemical wood pulp — 50 per cent of all Canadian trade to that country comes from Saskatchewan.
