Premier Jim Prentice today announced the appointment of three renowned leaders who will refocus efforts to increase the sale of Alberta goods and services around the globe.
These new appointments in key markets around the world underline a fresh approach on global affairs, and signal streamlined priorities that will be fundamentally tied to achieving secure market access and improving Alberta’s global competitiveness overall. They reflect a clear indication of the importance placed on enhancing intergovernmental and industry relationships across Canada, the United States and around the world. More effective global partnership development across government and industry is a priority of the Prentice Government.
In addition to seeing the Premier retain the duties of the International and Intergovernmental Relations, and Aboriginal Relations portfolios, the government has also recruited individuals who are leaders with deep expertise in priority geographies.
“I am honoured to welcome our new Senior Representatives. These are people who have considerable skills that will advance Alberta’s interests in terms of relationship-building, policy alignment and market development. Each will work in close contact with our government’s overall efforts to remove barriers and ensure that market access and global prices are achieved.”
