FREDERICTON, N.B. — New Brunswick companies have the opportunity to join the Team Canada Atlantic trade mission to New York City as associate participants on May 21-23.
The announcement was made by Gerry Byrne, Minister of State for the Atlantic Canada Opportunities Agency (ACOA) and Premier Bernard Lord.
Associate participants can attend numerous trade mission events such as the ‘Taste of Atlantic Canada’ reception; the Team Canada Atlantic forum; breakfast with the Atlantic premiers and Byrne; and an investment luncheon co-sponsored by the Canadian Society of New York. Matchmaking services with New York-based businesses are also available on a fee-for-service basis. “Interest in the Team Canada Atlantic Trade mission has been overwhelming,” says Byrne. “By offering this additional opportunity to network with members of the United States and Canadian business communities as associate participants, we’re expanding our team and increasing our potential investment and trade advantages.”
“This mission to New York City represents a good opportunity for our companies to form strategic partnerships to create greater opportunities for New Brunswickers,” says Lord. “Exports are an important component of Greater Opportunity: New Brunswick’s Prosperity Plan, which will make New Brunswick an investment magnet and the gateway for trade in North America.”
The mission is a co-operative effort between ACOA, the four Atlantic provinces, the Department of Foreign Affairs and International Trade, Industry Canada and the Canadian Manufacturers and Exporters.
