Saskatchewan Wholesale Trade Increase Best In Canada
Saskatchewan led the nation in both month-over-month and year-over-year wholesale trade increases according to Statistics Canada.
Wholesale trade in Saskatchewan was up 18.2 per cent (seasonally adjusted) in February 2019 when compared with last February.
On a monthly basis, wholesale trade jumped 7.5 per cent between January and February 2019.
“It is reassuring to see Saskatchewan lead Canada in both year-over-year and month-over-month increases,” Trade and Export Development Minister Jeremy Harrison said. “This sustained growth reflects strong market confidence and demand for Saskatchewan products indicating that our economy is on the right track.”
The total wholesale trade for February 2019 in Saskatchewan was $2.4 billion.
