PEI and the other Atlantic provinces are partnering with Ottawa on an investment strategy.
The Atlantic Trade and Investment Growth Strategy is meant to provide regional firms with competitive intelligence, training and skills development.
The federal and provincial partners will invest 20 million dollars over the next five years to support it.
The goal is to have twice as many Atlantic Canadian companies exporting to new global markets by 2025.
Cardigan MP Lawrence MacAulay, the federal Agriculture Minister, points to the blueberry industry as an example of a sector that will benefit.
