Christy Clark LNG Trade Mission Heads To Asia


VANCOUVER - B.C. Premier Christy Clark is leaving for her fourth international trade mission to Asia in an attempt to sell liquefied natural gas.

Clark and International Trade Minister Teresa Wat will be visiting China, Korea and Japan, countries that Clark says are hungering for clean energy like LNG.

The Premier says she hopes to move the yardstick a little closer to securing some proposed LNG projects that are worth billions of dollars for the province. .

Clark is expected to tour an LNG facility in China, meet with government officials and senior business executives, and attend a B.C.-Canada-Korea Natural Gas Forum.

The premier has repeatedly said that LNG development would lead to a trillion-dollar windfall that could wipe out the province's debt and create 100,000 jobs for British Columbians.

Last year, Clark went on a trade mission to Japan, Korea and the Philippines after having also travelled to China and India.
