Deputy premier visits China, South Korea

New Brunswick's deputy premier will travel to China and South Korea this week as part of an economic and advocacy initiative.

Stephen Horsman will promote the province's softwood lumber industry, and look to formalize twinning agreements with two jurisdictions.

He says enhancing trade with China is an important priority because the country is New Brunswick's third-largest market.

Horsman will also meet with business leaders at the Seoul Food and Hotel Expo.
