PUSA, NEW DEHLI: A ‘Saskatchewan Exposition’ workshop, co-hosted by Ag-West Bio and STEP will take place March 15th in Pusa, New Delhi during the Saskatchewan trade mission to India. Premier Brad Wall and Deputy Minister of Agriculture Alanna Koch will speak at the workshop, along with representatives from key organizations in Saskatchewan’s life science cluster. The Government of India plans to fly in key delegates from across the country to attend the workshop.

Brad Bly, who represents Ag-West Bio on the mission, says “India holds huge potential as a trading partner for Saskatchewan. Along with STEP’s role in facilitating trade between Saskatchewan and India, Ag-West and the life science cluster can work to help India develop the R&D and commercialization linkages in value-added and ag biotech sectors. Developing this relationship is mutually beneficial. It can accelerate existing trade and build a new market foundation for Saskatchewan research & technology.”

A multi-sector trade mission to India, Bangladesh and Sri Lanka includes a contingency of 20 Saskatchewan life science organizations led by Saskatchewan Trade and Export Partnership (STEP), Ag-West Bio and the Saskatchewan Pulse Growers.
