OTTAWA Authentic Matt Calvert Jersey , April 20 (Xinhua) -- While exploratory talks on aCanada-China free-trade deal are set to resume next week here, theCanadian Cabinet minister in charge of the trade file will be inChina hoping to expand demand for a key Canadian export.

Currently, the largest market for Canadian softwood lumber isthe United States. But Canada and the U.S. have been locked in adecades-long trade dispute over the wood, which could intensifynext week when the U.S. Commerce Department is expected to announcewhether it will impose a countervailing duty on Canadian softwoodlumber imports.

"Diversification is part of the solution to that," CanadianInternational Trade Minister Fran?ois-Philippe Champagne toldXinhua in an interview here Thursday. "My role as chief marketingofficer of Canada is to make sure the forestry industry throughoutCanada is healthy."

In his view, there is a significant market opportunity forsoftwood lumber in China Authentic Alexander Wennberg Jersey , the second-largest importer of theCanadian wood behind the U.S., which accounts for 78 percent ofCanadian exports compared to China's 13 percent share, according toCanadian government figures.

Champagne, a 46-year-old lawyer and international tradespecialist from the French-speaking Canadian province of Quebecprior to entering politics in 2015, is leading a Canadian businessdelegation that will pitch Canadian softwood lumber as a must-have,environmentally friendly product during his first official visit toChina that begins on Friday.

"I want to make sure that our Chinese friends understand thatsoftwood lumber is a reliable Authentic Zach Werenski Jersey , eco-friendly source of building newhouses in China," he said. "There are a lot of people in the middleclass there that are looking to move to cities, and my message tothem is that wood is in vogue in Canada."

Champagne explained that he hopes Canadian softwood lumber canbe part of China's "toolkit" to support the country'sclimate-change strategy and "promote environmentally friendlyconstruction."

Appointed to Prime Minister Justin Trudeau's Cabinet just fourmonths ago, the International Trade Minister will visit fourChinese cities - Shanghai, Chongquing, Zhengzhou and Beijing - andwill meet with several senior government officials Authentic Jack Johnson Jersey , includingChinese Commerce Minister Zhong Shan and Chen Zhenggao, China'sMinister of Housing and Urban-Rural Development.

In Zhengzhou, Champagne will attend the 2017 China GreenCompanies Summit where he plans to position Canada as a source of"clean-tech" industry.

"As we have these exploratory talks on a possible free-tradeagreement, trying to find areas where we can cooperate together forour mutual benefit is the right thing to do - and that is why Iwant to bring in softwood as part of our discussions," he said.Enditem

MADRID, Feb. 23 (Xinhua) -- The accident which saw Spanish Formula 1 pilot Fernando Alonso airlifted to hospital in Barcelona on Sunday was not caused by any mechanical failure or driver error Cheap Josh Anderson Jersey , but a gust of "wind", his McLaren Honda team confirmed on Monday.

Alonso needed to be airlifted to hospital after hitting a wall at 150 kilometers an hour, during pre-season practice in the Montmelo circuit outside of Barcelona.

"The accident was caused by the unpredictable gusts of wind in that part of the circuit and they had also affected other pilots in a similar manner," explained his team, which insisted there had been no mechanical or structural failure in the Spaniard's car.

The team also denied rumors that Alonso had lost consciousness before the crash, explaining that the fact he had changed gear and braked before hitting the wall Cheap Nick Foligno Jersey , was "clearly impossible if he had been unconscious at that moment".

Alonso has undergone a series of tests in hospital to ensure he had not suffered any internal injuries and McLaren say the results have been "completely normal", although he will "remain in hospital in order to recover from the effects of his medication and sedation", and he will leave hospital when he can "lead a normal life".

"There is no hurry, we don't know if he will be one, two or three days, we will be in as long as needed for the medical team to decide we can leave" Cheap David Savard Jersey , confirmed his representative, Luis Garcia Abad.
