Bavarian Vice-Minister of Economy, Ms. Katja Hessel, conducting a delegation of economic and scientific experts to Alberta


Vice-Minister in the Bavarian State Ministry of Economic Affairs, Infrastructure, Transport and Technology, Ms. Katja Hessel, conducted a delegation of 25 experts from the fields of economy and science to Alberta, from the 28th of March until the 2nd of April 2011.

High-ranking political appointments were scheduled, like Premier Ed Stelmach's attendance and the visit of National Sellers and Buyers Forum in Edmonton, the University of Alberta and visits to Fort MacMurray and Calgary. This delegation is the third of its kind since 2006. In 2008 an agreement has been developed, that has since then influenced collaborations in the scientific field between Bavaria and Alberta. The trip was a success; attendees expressed their hopes and concrete plans for possible intensified cooperations.
