Governor Hogan Leads Maryland Tourism & Trade Delegation to Canada
Governor Larry Hogan joined Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe and District of Columbia Mayor Muriel Bowser for a Capital Region tourism and economic development mission to Canada. As part of the joint mission, Governor Hogan, Governor McAuliffe, and Mayor Bowser met with the Province of Ontario’s Premier Kathleen Wynne in Toronto, and then attended a reception at the residence of U.S. Consul General Juan Alsace. In addition, Governor Hogan and Secretary Gill met with more than a dozen Canadian companies and business organizations to promote Maryland as an ideal U.S. location for tourism, trade, and investment.
“Canada is not only the largest trading partner for the Capital Region, but we also share a commitment to entrepreneurship, innovation, and high-growth industries like cybersecurity, life sciences, and aerospace and defense,” said Governor Hogan. “We are confident this mission will strengthen our regional partnerships and encourage even more trade and investment, as well as spur new opportunities for Canadians to tour the Capital Region.”
