MLA Angela Pitt is at the National Conference of State Legislatures (NCSL) to advance Alberta’s interests.
As the representative of Alberta in the NCLS, MLA Pitt, who represents Airdrie-East, is in Indianapolis, Indiana, August 13–17 to attend the annual summit. To further shared goals, she will engage with legislators, represent Alberta's interests, and fortify relationships.
Members of Congress and other top officials from all 50 U.S. states, commonwealths, territories, and the District of Columbia participate in the NCSL. The conference encourages collaboration between state legislators in the United States and other countries.
"Ensuring Alberta has a seat at the table will allow us to champion our economy, drive innovation and foster robust trade ties with our partners in the United States. Maintaining our strong trade relationship is a priority to ensure the smooth flow of goods, services and investments, boosting Alberta's export-driven industries like energy, agriculture and manufacturing. Preserving our positive relationship with our U.S. counterparts helps safeguard jobs, economic growth and overall prosperity on both sides of the border," stated Angela Pitt.
The government of Alberta is dedicated to collaborating with its domestic and international allies to accomplish common objectives that may open up new opportunities for residents of Alberta and businesses operating globally.
The United States is Alberta’s largest trading partner and Alberta is the largest provincial exporter to the U.S. In 2022, Alberta’s exports to the U.S. totalled US$141.3 billion.
