Red Deer South MLA Cal Dallas will be selling the virtues of Alberta as a trading partner when he speaks at forum in Washington, D.C., on Thursday.

Dallas, who is the province’s minister of International and Intergovernmental Relations, is scheduled to give a keynote address to the Canadian American Business Council in the U.S. capital.

He is expected to discuss Alberta’s goal of becoming a preferred international energy supplier, and the opportunities the province offers beyond oil and gas — including trade and investment expansion into Asia and other markets.

Dallas is also slated to meet with congressional officials and staff from the Alberta Washington Office.

“Having stronger relationships among Canada, the U.S. and China is important to all of our economies,” said Dallas in a release.

“Alberta’s participation in missions like this allows us to present our interests in building new international bridges that foster friendship and economic development. It helps ensure that U.S. decision-makers understand the scope of our international policy development and the opportunities available for expanding into other global markets.”

Dallas was scheduled to fly with his executive assistant to Washington today and return on Thursday. The total cost of the trip was estimated at $14,300.
