Victoria:  Premier Christy Clark announced she will lead her fifth international trade mission. Along with Minister of Natural Gas Development Rich Coleman and industry delegates, she will travel to Malaysia, Singapore, and Hong Kong to promote the development of British Columbia’s liquefied natural gas (LNG) industry from May 2 to May 9.

“B.C. is on the right path to bring home the generational opportunity of LNG – an industry that will create 100,000 jobs and enough revenue to eliminate our debt,” said Premier Clark. “To take the last crucial steps towards final investment decisions, we’re meeting with key Asian investors and governments.”

The Premier and Minister Coleman will meet with key companies moving forward with LNG proposals in B.C. The meetings are an opportunity to reinforce the province’s competitive advantages to new investors, and commitment to deliver clean, reliable energy solutions to the growing economies of Asia.
