Alberta has a rich European heritage. Over 80% of Albertans can trace their ancestry back to countries in Europe.

Alberta has developed many long-standing economic and cultural links to these countries, and has an international office in the United Kingdom.

Europe is Alberta's second largest source of foreign direct investment, and third most important regional export destination.

The Ministry is responsible for investment attraction, trade development, and government to government relations in Europe.

ED&T represents and advises on Alberta’s interests with regard to foreign governments; manages Alberta's twinning relationships with international jurisdictions, including Germany (Saxony), and Ukraine (Ivano-Frankivsk and Lviv); and coordinates inbound programs for visiting dignitaries.
