Canola Growers Welcome China Ambassador Announcement

The Canadian Canola Growers Association (CCGA) is pleased to see that a new ambassador has been named to China.
This week, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau announced that Dominic Barton would fill the position.
“We’re pleased to see the appointment of Dominic Barton as Canada’s Ambassador to China,” says CCGA President Bernie McClean. “His extensive business experience in Asia makes him well-suited to move Canada-China trade relations in a positive direction.”
Barton most recently chaired the advisory council on economic growth, which highlighted the importance of strengthening Canada’s agri-food sector for future economic growth.
“We’ve consistently emphasized the importance of appointing a new Ambassador as part of the solution to resolving trade issues with China,” commented CCGA Executive Director Rick White. “It’s good to see that recommendations coming out of the Canola Working Group are being implemented.”
