"The key sectors for exports are in transport and material handling, however there are opportunities to develop exports in new sectors and that is one of the reasons for the trade mission this week.

"Trade missions form an important part of exploring new markets giving companies the opportunity to meet with potential buyers and distributors. Having spoken with the company representatives who have travelled to Canada, I know they are feeling positive about the week ahead and are keen to engage with Invest Northern Ireland’s experts on the ground, who are available to help with research and information on the market."
