The Asian Market Opportunity

Increasing energy demand in Asia is an opportunity for Canadian exports

Canada possesses large reserves of oil and natural gas, and is a net exporter of both. Currently, almost all of our exports go to one customer: the United States. Diversifying our markets would enable Canada to get better prices for our products while taking advantage of growing markets in places like China and India. This infographic shows why Asian markets represent a significant export opportunity for Canada, provided we can build the pipelines and marine transport infrastructure to get our resources there.
