Canada's Senior Trade Commissioner Monica Heron and the international trade staff of the Canadian Consulate General-Denver will visit Colorado Springs Wednesday (Feb. 14) to talk about how local companies can share in the profits from Colorado's largest international trade relationship.
In 2005, Colorado exports to Canada were valued at $847 million and trade with Canada supported 93,000 Colorado jobs. Aerospace, bio-tech, information and communication technologies, and agriculture are among the principal trade relationships. The 7:30 a.m. meeting will be held at the Greater Colorado Springs Chamber of Commerce, 2 N. Cascade, Suite 110. For more information, or to schedule a one-on-one appointment with one of the Canadian officials, call the Colorado Springs Office of International Affairs at 575-4314 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
