CEA to lead UKTI trade mission to Canada
UK delegates invited to participate in mining trade mission to Saskatchewan and Ontario
THE Construction Equipment Association (CEA) is running a UK Trade & Investment-supported mining trade mission to Saskatchewan and Ontario from 2–7 November 2014.
Commissioned by UKTI and delivered by the CEA, in conjunction with the British Consulate General in Calgary, the trade mission will include a programme of mine visits, meetings, and networking opportunities. The mission, will be led Joanna Oliver MBE, the CEA’s director of global programmes.
Canada is one of the world’s largest mining nations, producing more than 60 metals and minerals and is a leading producer of potash, uranium, aluminium and titanium, as well as a number of other important commodities. In 2012, Canada had in excess of 1,200 mining establishments, and the value of Canadian mining reached $43.6 billion in 2013.
Canadian mine operators are looking for innovative products and techniques to save money, time and extend mine life, and UK delegates are invited to present their company’s products, skills and services to mine owners, operators, EPCs, associations and end-users, while learning more about mining supply chain opportunities in Saskatchewan and Ontario.
The six-day programme will also include attendance at a Canadian Association of Mining Equipment and Services for Export (CAMESE) mining procurement event. The CAMESE Mining Procurement Forum is the Canadian mining industry’s annual buyer-seller event.
A £450 UKTO Market Access Programme (MPA) travel grant is available to eligible SME missioners.
