May 16, 2011 – The chief economist for Export Development Canada says
Saskatchewan's exports of grains and oilseeds should boost its
international exports 19 per cent this year.

Peter Hall says the crops will help recover some of the lost ground after the extreme wet weather conditions in 2010.

Hall says Saskatchewan's international exports are expected to climb another six per cent in 2012.

Export Development Canada says Saskatchewan's exports are led by three sectors: agrifood, energy and fertilizer.
