I just read about the ACOA mission to India. I am a fan of more cooperation among the four province when it comes to international marketing activities such as this. I know that some folks aren’t so keen on this and I respect their position. They say introducing another layer of geography between a province and a country – doesn’t really help. But if you look at England, they are marketing ‘regions’. If you look a the United States, you will find a number of regional initiatives.
But this region has a lot of common problems – ironically with the emergence of oil & gas there is a gap rising between NS/NL and NB/PEI – and I think cooperation really makes sense.
