International investment and trade
The B.C. government pursues strategic opportunities to promote British Columbia internationally as a preferred place to invest and do business. This is done by delivering services that accelerate British Columbia’s exports, attract strategic investments, establish international offices, develop international partnerships, increase awareness of its competitive advantages, and negotiate agreements that eliminate barriers to trade.
The B.C. government works with international enterprises to help them build strong links to the resources, skills and businesses that make British Columbia an attractive place to work and invest.
Trade agreements have proven to be one of the best ways to improve trade conditions for exporters and investors. They reduce export and investment barriers, and protect the interests of companies exporting and investing in other countries.
