Atlantic Canada Opportunities Agency through the Business Development Program and in partnership with Innovation PEI and the other Atlantic provinces, would like to advise you of an upcoming program to the China Fisheries and Seafood show, November 2-4, 2016. This show is one of the largest seafood events in Asia, making it an excellent venue to enter into the Chinese seafood market. Prince Edward Island companies will have the opportunity to be part of the Canadian Pavilion, in which an Atlantic Canadian chef station will be exhibiting Atlantic species.
The main objectives are to showcase Prince Edward Island’s expertise in the seafood sector and to increase exports to the Chinese market. Companies will have an opportunity to target new partners, buyers and agents in a new market, and to increase their competitive intelligence on similar products and services through exhibiting their products and walking the show. There will be the added element of match making services.
In addition to the seafood show, there is also the opportunity to participate in a trade mission to South Korea on October 30-31, 2016. Companies will participate in a guided tour of local retail supermarkets and fish markets on October 30, with the Canadian Embassy hosting an export café and product tasting on October 31.
