OTTAWA, ON, May 28, 2022 Innovation, Science and Economic Development Canada

/CNW Telbec/ - Today, the Honourable François-Philippe Champagne, Minister of Innovation, Science and Industry, concluded a visit to Europe, where he met with key industry stakeholders and business leaders to continue promoting Canada as a reliable, stable and attractive economic partner.

Minister Champagne began the week by participating in the World Economic Forum Annual Meeting. This was an opportunity for the Minister to highlight everything Canada has to offer to potential investors and businesses, including Volkswagen, Intel, LG Chem and Rio Tinto, as companies seek to secure and green their supply chains. While at the Forum, Minister Champagne also talked about Canada's unique model for attracting and retaining talent to help businesses succeed and grow. He also met with a number of political leaders, including Ukraine's First Prime Minister as well as the country's Vice Prime Minister, to discuss how Canadian businesses can help in the reconstruction effort.

During his European visit, Minister Champagne also met with officials from organizations that play an essential role in supporting innovation across industry, including Finland's innovation agency. The information gathered at these meetings will help inform the design and the mandate of the new Canadian Innovation and Investment Agency, recently announced in Budget 2022.

"This week was another great opportunity to make the case for Canada as one of the best places in the world to do business. Rarely have I seen so much interest in Canada from global CEOs. I met with business leaders to promote everything Canada has to offer, including an educated workforce, world-class research institutions and abundant sources of clean energy. I will continue to work tirelessly to attract more investments to Canada that will create well-paying jobs and spur economic growth."
