RECORD EX­PORTS

Journal Pioneer - - FRONT PAGE -

Over 100 Is­land en­trepreneurs gath­ered to learn about ex­port­ing to in­ter­na­tional mar­kets yes­ter­day dur­ing Ex­port Day at the P.E.I. Con­ven­tion Cen­tre. Ex­port Day (Sept. 14) is a part­ner­ship be­tween the pro­vin­cial gov­ern­ment and ACOA that brings to­gether en­trepreneurs from across the Is­land for a day of learn­ing, net­work­ing and col­lab­o­ra­tion. Eg­mont MP Bobby Mor­ris­sey says the fed­eral and pro­vin­cial govern­ments want to dou­ble the num­ber of ex­port-fo­cused com­pa­nies in At­lantic Canada. Eco­nomic De­vel­op­ment and Tourism Min­is­ter Heath Mac­Don­ald says Is­land busi­nesses have done a tremen­dous job ac­cess­ing new mar­kets and de­vel­op­ing new prod­ucts and tech­nolo­gies. The prov­ince set records for in­ter­na­tional ex­ports each of the last three years and is track­ing to­ward an­other record in 2017.
