Premier to meet Miche­lin of­fi­cials

The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - ATLANTIC -

HAL­I­FAX — Nova Sco­tia Premier Stephen McNeil’s trade mis­sion to France will in­clude a stop at Miche­lin’s head of­fice.

The French tire gi­ant is the largest public sec­tor em­ployer in the province and McNeil, who left Sun­day for a week-long visit, said he wants to ex­plore any po­ten­tial in­ter­est the com­pany has in ex­pand­ing its op­er­a­tions in Nova Sco­tia.

McNeil said while no such plans have been brought to his at­ten­tion, the visit to the com­pany’s head­quar­ters south of Paris, is more than just a cour­tesy call to se­nior ex­ec­u­tives.

McNeil said while the province would not of­fer a fi­nan­cial pack­age to en­tice com­pa­nies dur­ing the trip, there are pro­grams they can take ad­van­tage of like the cap­i­tal tax credit for large cor­po­ra­tions.
