Trade and export development minister Jeremy Harrison is leading the delegation with a focus on expanding opportunities in agriculture, critical minerals, innovative technology, immigration and talent attraction.

He says more than one in six jobs in the province is tied directly to international exports.

Saskatchewan's merchandise exports to the EU and UK have increased by 50 per cent from $1.8 billion in 2021 to $2.7 billion in 2022. 

Last year, the top three export products to the EU were potash ($760.4 million), wheat ($587.5 million), and uranium ($409.2 million).

Job recruitment is also a key part of the trade mission especially as it relates to opportunities in the ag sector.

Joining Harrison is a delegation of businesses and representatives from the Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program.

Brent Bazin, the service executive for Young's Equipment says while they have apprenticeship programs,  it's still a challenge to fill all the available job positions.

In the past, he notes, they've successfully used the Immigrant Nominee program as a recruitment tool and now have several long-term employees that are permanently settled here.

He's hoping they'll have similar success finding potential employees in Poland.
