Question Period – MPP Saunderson and Minister of Economic Development Vic Fedeli

Today (Tuesday October 25, 2022) in Question Period, Simcoe-Grey MPP Brian Saunderson asked the Honourable Vic Fedeli, Minister of Economic Development, Job Creation and Trade, to comment on meetings held on his recent trip to Japan and south Korea.

Minister Fedeli said the mission was an opportunity to re-engage with trusted partners in South Korea and Japan. He told the legislature that he met with international investors in the automotive and EV Battery sector in both countries. 

MPP Saunderson said the meetings were of particular interest to residents of Simcoe-Grey as two important automotive manufacturers operate in the riding.

Minister Fedeli said officials in both Japan and South Korea see Ontario as a safe place for their employees and families.

“What we heard from the EV sector in Japan and South Korea … they told us that in this world filled with turmoil, they view Ontario as a sea of calm, a stable, a reliable, a trusted jurisdiction.”
