RECORD EXPORTS IN MARCH HIGHLIGHT STRENGTH OF SASKATCHEWAN MERCHANDISE

Saskatchewan exports reached another record in March 2013, totaling $3.16 billion, the highest ever for the month and up 8.7 per cent from last year.

“Exports are one of the main staples of the Saskatchewan economy,” Minister responsible for Trade Tim McMillan said.  “Saskatchewan is an investment friendly province and our competitive environment allows companies to grow their business and develop the products in demand world-wide.”

Compared to last March, exports were up in a number of key areas including farm, fishing and food, up 5.0 per cent, metal ores and non-metallic minerals, up 36.9 per cent, metal and non-metallic mineral products, up 39.5 per cent and consumer goods up 109.8 per cent.

Merchandise exports continue to climb in 2013, up 7.8 per cent in the first three months of the year when compared to the same period last year, the highest percentage increase among the provinces.

“Right now Saskatchewan is the envy of many other jurisdictions because of the diversity of our exports,” McMillan said.  “We are a secure and stable supplier of food and other products which has attracted customers in emerging markets and bodes well for the future of this important area of our economy.”
