Advancing women’s economic empowerment and participation in trade is fundamental to the Government of Canada’s Export Diversification Strategy and is key to ensuring that the country’s economic recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic is inclusive and sustainable.
Today, the Honourable Mary Ng, Minister of Small Business, Export Promotion and International Trade, joined the Asia Pacific Foundation of Canada to announce the first virtual trade mission to South Korea for women, supported by an investment from the Women Entrepreneurship Strategy’s Ecosystem Fund.
Through a series of virtual sessions, panel discussions, and business training, this mission—which will take place on November 3 and 4, 2020—will promote the expertise of Canadian women entrepreneurs in STEM sectors such as healthtech, biotech, agritech, and edutech with a focus on innovative and sustainable solutions in care services.
The mission will help Canadian women entrepreneurs explore opportunities in South Korea and help them grow their businesses in the international marketplace while also deepening the strong economic relationship between Canada and South Korea.
