Alberta’s economic success requires strong linkages with international markets.  Focusing on key geographic markets, Economic Development and Trade facilitates export and trade development in targeted industry sectors.

Staff work closely with Alberta companies to:

  • Identify and provide market information and intelligence
  • Introduce them to international key contacts and business networks
  • Provide in-market support such as establishing an Alberta presence at key sector trade shows that include and feature Alberta companies and industry partners

As part of this work, the Ministry also provides Alberta companies with access to information on projects financed by international financial institutions and leads the Alberta Government's participation in the World Bank's Private Sector.
