The Government of Saskatchewan’s Growth Plan outlines Saskatchewan’s economic roadmap from 2020-2030. One of the priorities designed to help the province reach its economic targets is through the network of nine international trade and investment offices in China, Germany, India, Japan, Mexico, Singapore, United Kingdom, United Arab Emirates and Vietnam.
The Ministry of Trade and Export Development advances economic growth to generate opportunity in Saskatchewan and facilitates a coordinated cross-government approach to attract investment and grow export markets. The Ministry fosters and supports a competitive business environment, facilitates export development, and strengthens Saskatchewan's international relations.
To effectively deliver on the commitment to build Saskatchewan’s international network, the Ministry of Trade and Export Development is recruiting for two (2) Managing Directors to lead the Saskatchewan offices in New Delhi, India and Tokyo, Japan.
