BC Minister of Economic Development Appeals for Japanese Investment

In a recent Vancouver meeting with Japanese journalists, BC Assistant Deputy Minister of Economic Development Mike Carter appealed for Japanese investment and explained why the province had a bright future. Carter said, for example, that the BC economy’s current shift from natural resources and tourism to high technology would result in high growth. He also explained that BC was expanding its sea port and airport facilities, aiming for a 76-billion-yen (C $679.4 million) expansion in trade with Asia by 2020.
