Canadian Western Agribition recently wrapped up in Regina and this year the show enjoyed full use of the completed International Trade Centre. Construction of the multi-purpose facility was supported by an investment of $22 million from the federal-provincial Growing Forward 2 program, and the building is a great addition to shows like Agribition and Canada’s Farm Progress Show.
Our agriculture industry and our government remain focused on trade. Earlier this month, I traveled on a trade mission to Japan, our fourth largest export market and an important destination for our wheat and canola seed, among other agricultural commodities. We also look forward to opportunities that may come with the Comprehensive and Progressive Agreement for Trans-Pacific Partnership.
