Agriculture Minister David Marit is leading a trade delegation to India and the United Arab Emirates.

As part of the trip, Marit will attend the Pulses Conclave in Mumbai, India and the Gulfood Exhibition in Dubai.

The overall goal is to gain a better understanding of international stakeholders' current and future needs, promote the sustainability of Saskatchewan's crop production and strengthen trade, research and investment ties with some of our long-standing partners.

Marit says the United Arab Emirates and India are both important markets for our province and represent over $769 million in combined agri-food exports in 2022.
