Alberta’s oil and gas sector will be the focus of an 11-day trip to three major Asian markets to strengthen ties with investors and industry stakeholders.
Energy Minister Margaret McCuaig-Boyd will travel to Japan, China and South Korea to engage in talks about new investment and energy diversification opportunities in Alberta.
