Lethbridge-East MLA Nathan Neudorf and Banff-Kananaskis MLA Miranda Rosin will travel to Boise, Idaho, July 18-23 to meet with lawmakers, industry representatives and other delegates from CSG West jurisdictions and attend the organization’s 75th annual meeting.

Alberta’s government is committed to working with its national and international partners to advance shared interests that can lead to new opportunities for people and businesses in Alberta and around the world.

“Conversation and collaboration with our American partners is vital. Meeting with key legislators and decision makers in the western U.S. provides a prime opportunity to discuss the challenges we face today and how Alberta products and companies can provide effective solutions. It is an honour to represent Alberta in this way to strengthen our ties with this important region and maximize our relationship to the benefit of everyone at the table.”

Nathan Neudorf, MLA for Lethbridge-East and Alberta’s representative to CSG West

“Alberta’s economy continues to rely heavily on our ability to export our goods to our U.S. partners. This meeting allows us to strengthen our connections in this region, paving the way for accessing new markets for our energy, agri-food, tourism, manufacturing and forestry products, among others. Being involved in this annual forum ensures we are part of conversations about future growth and ways we can work better together to grow trade, boost investment and support energy security on both sides of the border.”

Miranda Rosin, MLA for Banff-Kananaskis

CSG West is a regional multilateral forum that brings together lawmakers and government leaders from 13 states: Alaska, Arizona, California, Colorado, Hawaii, Idaho, Montana, Nevada, New Mexico, Oregon, Utah, Washington and Wyoming. Alberta and British Columbia, and the U.S. territories of the Commonwealth of Guam, American Samoa and the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands are associate members.

Mission expenses will be posted on the travel and expense disclosure page.
