VICTORIA - Finance Minister Michael de Jong travels to Toronto for two events at the upcoming Bloomberg Canada Economic Summit and the Economic Club of Canada on May 13, 2014.

British Columbia’s LNG opportunity, balanced budget, triple-A credit rating, economic outlook and investment opportunities will be the focus of discussions.

The trip will also include ministerial-level meetings with federal ministers in Ottawa.

de Jong was invited to speak at Bloomberg’s Canada Economic Summit, where he will profile recent advances in the B.C. LNG sector and discuss how B.C.’s proposed LNG tax will strike the right balance between a fair return for British Columbians while keeping the province an attractive and competitive place to develop LNG.

The estimated travel and accommodation cost for the minister and one staff member is approximately $3,900. Detailed information on final amounts will be made available.
