Ambassador Luo Zhaohui Meets with Premier Brad Wall of Saskatchewan

On 28 August 2015, Ambassador Luo Zhaohui met with Premier of Saskatchewan Honourable Brad Wall in Regina, the provincial capital of Saskatchewan. They exchanged views on China-Canada relations and bilateral pragmatic cooperation in agriculture, energy resources and other fields.

Ambassador Luo said that Saskatchewan is Canada's major province known for its agriculture and energy resources. The Chinese side and Saskatchewan have developed a solid foundation for cooperation in the two sectors and achieved fruitful results. Saskatchewan enjoys a long-standing trade surplus with China and is expected to leverage its advantages to further deepen practical cooperation and friendly exchanges with China in such sectors as agriculture, energy resources and education, and contribute to the strengthening of China-Canada strategic partnership.

Premier Wall said that Saskatchewan attaches great importance to its relations with China and welcomes more Chinese enterprises to invest in the province. He indicated he is looking forward to visiting China again next year to discuss with the Chinese side ways to deepen mutually beneficial cooperation in agriculture and energy sectors, and cultural and people to people exchanges. He also reaffirmed his willingness to contribute to the growth of Canada-China relations.

During his stay in Saskatchewan, the Chinese ambassador also visited SaskPower and exchanged views with the corporate executives on how the two countries can develop cooperation in carbon capture, use and storage.
