TORONTO — Premier Kathleen Wynne has begun a two-week trade mission to China and Vietnam with more than 100 business and academic delegates.

It is the first time an Ontario premier has led a trade mission to Vietnam, which did $3 billion in two-way trade with the province last year.

The trip marks the third time Wynne has led missions to China, which is Ontario’s second-largest trading partner with $42 billion in two-way trade last year.

The mission starts Nov. 23 in Beijing, and Wynne then travels to Nanjing, Chongqing, Shenzhen and Hong Kong, then on to Ho Chi Minh City and Hanoi in Vietnam.

The trip is focusing on finding partnerships in the medical technologies, science and technology, and agri-food sectors.

Wynne says international trade is vital to Ontario’s strength, and notes that this mission will open doors for Ontario businesses looking to expand internationally.

    “Wynne says international trade is vital to Ontario’s strength, and notes that this mission will open doors for Ontario businesses looking to expand internationally.”.

    It will also undoubtedly close doors of manufacturing businesses in Ontario. But that’s all part of her agenda to get rid of what she views as distasteful, polluting, blue-collar jobs.

    Living proof that long-term viability is irrelevant if you have a vision….

    What’s vital to Ontario’s strength, Kate, is affordable Hydro, manufacturing, small businesses and a largely employed population. Not one of those items is a part of your long-term plan. Sadly, they’re not even part of your short-term plan.
