A delegation from China visited Kitimat last week to check out its suitability for a break bulk dock they are looking at building.
And, says mayor Joanne Monaghan, they were “very enthusiastic” about what they saw and learned.
Monaghan said the company many represented – Bei Da Huang – is one of the largest agricultural groups in China.
She said the main agricultural products of the company are listed as grain, oil plants (canola), sugar beets, meat, milk, fruit and aqua products.
It is now looking to expand its operationsinto Canada.
