Premier Announces Strategic Partnership With Harper And Associates
The Government of Saskatchewan has contracted global affairs firm Harper and Associates to support the province’s increased focus on international trade and engagement.
“Our province has the food, fuel and fertilizer to support a growing world population and we are actively taking that message to our customers around the globe,” Premier Scott Moe said. “Harper and Associates has the expertise and experience to assist us as we work to increase our exports and attract further investment into the province.”
“Saskatchewan is a world class exporter and a powerhouse in our confederation,” Stephen J. Harper said. “Its people and products can compete and win at home and around the world. But in this era of unprecedented uncertainty and disruption, governments everywhere must be focused on global competitiveness. That is why I am so pleased to join Premier Moe, Minister Harrison and their team in working to deepen trade relationships with, and sell more products to, important foreign markets.”
Harper and Associates will provide guidance, advice and support to the provincial government on increasing and diversifying Saskatchewan’s exports, enhancing access to foreign markets for Saskatchewan-based products and attracting investment to the province. This includes assisting with strategies and planning for international missions.
Harper and Associates will assist the province in targeting specific geographic regions of importance for the province, specifically key Asian markets. The value of the contract is $240,000.
