In the world of global trade, big names like China and the U.S. are usually the first to come to mind as partners with Canada.
But a European country best known on this side of the pond for its chocolate is hoping to change minds and get in on the trade action with Canada.
This week, a trade delegation from Belgium was in the Lower Mainland looking to drum up some business, and on Tuesday, the group from the country nestled between France and Germany was in Burnaby to check out some local companies.
One of the stops was Alpha Technologies, a Burnaby-based technology company specializing in power solutions that has close ties to Belgium.
