Getting Goods to Market
Demand from Asian economies is high and growing. In order to ensure producers and shippers have reliable, accessible facilities, we need to further develop port capacity and rail networks. The markets we open today will require continued investments in our airports. We will also continue to aggressively seek out partnerships with aviation companies to use B.C. airports as destinations for their passengers and cargo.

- Releasing the Pacific Gateway Transportation Plan.
- Continuing transportation infrastructure investment.
