This event organised by Highlands and Islands Enterprise will look at business oppportunities in Canada.
The UK exported £8.2 billion of goods and services to Canada in 2016, making it the UK’s eighth biggest export market outside the European Union. The UK is Canada’s seventh largest source of goods imports and second largest services trading partner.
Canada has a stable political environment and a strong record of economic growth. It offers opportunities for UK companies across all sectors.
The implementation of the EU-Canada Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement (CETA) opens up further opportunities for UK companies as well as removing barriers to trade.
