Promoting Alberta natural gas in Asia

'As part of our plan to revitalize Alberta's natural gas sector, I'm meeting with investors and government officials to share with them that Alberta is open for business. We are a place they can turn to as a source of clean, secure, and ethically produced natural gas.'

While in Tokyo, Associate Minister Nally will attend the GZERO Summit, a world-leading conference where leaders and experts from government, industry and media will discuss how global challenges are spilling over into domestic politics, and Japan's potential leadership in this new world.
