Intl. Minister of Trade Ed Fast Visits Lynch: Highlights Government Support for Canada’s Manufacturing Sector

The Canadian Minister of International Trade, the Honourable Edward Fast, Member of Parliament for Abbotsford, British Columbia and Brad Butt, the local Conservative Member of Parliament (MP) for the Mississauga-Streetsville riding, visited Lynch Headquarters.

“(Lynch is) one of those companies that we, as a government, are so proud of”

Following a meeting with President Ernie Lynch, the company’s CEO/president, the Minister of International Trade was impressed with Lynch’s ability to export its products to over 50 countries. “(Lynch is) one of those companies that we, as a government, are so proud of,” he said, adding that most small to medium-sized enterprises are reluctant to make the leap to international trade. “Canadians are a cautious lot. For us to venture into something new, we need a bit of a nudge.”

Fast said that the government can help Canadian companies trade with international markets by putting in place policy framework agreements, which overcome barriers such as tariffs and red tape. “We want to make sure that when Canadian companies invest all over the world, those investments are secure,” he said. Along with the Minister, Lynch Fluid Controls was host to numerous media representatives including The Canadian Business Journal, South Asian Weekly, Polish, Italian media, as well as Mississauga News.
