Premier To Promote Saskatchewan On Trade Mission To India

Released on November 22, 2018

Premier Scott Moe leaves November 23 for a week-long trade mission to India where he will meet with government and industry officials to promote opportunities for trade and investment between Saskatchewan and India.

“India is one of our province’s most important trading partners and holds enormous potential for further growth,” Moe said.  “India’s economy and population are booming and Saskatchewan has what India needs to support that growth.  Saskatchewan is a world leading producer of sustainable food, fuel and fertilizer, which gives us the unique ability to work with India to enhance its food and energy security.  I look forward to telling that story and highlighting our province’s academic and innovation strengths during this mission.”

The mission aims to improve market access for Saskatchewan exports to India; to create opportunities for Saskatchewan uranium and potash players to grow exports to India; to highlight the province’s attractive investment climate; and to advance Saskatchewan’s post-secondary linkages with India.

Highlights of the mission include:
  • meetings with senior Indian government officials, business leaders and potential investors;
  • meetings with current and potential importers of Saskatchewan products;
  • participation in the Indo-Canadian Business Chamber Annual National Convention;
  • participation in the Canada-India Business Council’s 8th Annual Mumbai Business Forum; and
  • discussions with Saskatchewan post-secondary students and alumni from India.
Over the past decade, Saskatchewan has exported more than $11 billion worth of goods to India, including $1.15 billion in 2017, more than any other Canadian province or territory.  Saskatchewan was India’s largest supplier of lentils and peas, with potash and uranium being other important exports.  Approximately 4,550 Saskatchewan jobs rely on exports to India.
