PRINCE GEORGE – Bob Zimmer, Member of Parliament for Prince George-Peace River-Northern Rockies, made the following statement regarding the designation of Prince George as a Foreign Trade Zone Point, as well as $335,566 in funding for the City of Prince George to develop a clean technology cluster.

“As we all know, Prince George is an important economic hub for our region and I am happy to see the city receive recognition as a Foreign Trade Zone Point. I have been working on trade opportunities for the region since I first became a Member of Parliament in 2011 and this designation, as well as funding to develop the city’s clean technology sector, is encouraging.
