bauma 2019Bauma, the world’s largest trade show for the international construction machinery, mining equipment, and building material machinery sectors, has named Canada as its official partner country for the April 2019 show.

According to organizers Canada was chosen to “reflect the great international relevance of its minerals, building materials, and construction sectors as well as the anticipation of significantly expanding EU-Canadian trade under the CETA agreement.

“Canada is one of the most important commodity-producing countries there is. In addition, CETA, the free trade agreement recently signed between the EU and Canada, will lend fresh impetus to bilateral trade. This is why we want to use bauma 2019 and the opportunities afforded by the partner country concept to bind our industries even closer together,” says says Johanna Sailer, chairman of the Construction Equipment and Building Material Machinery Association within the VDMA and chairman of the bauma exhibitors’ advisory board.

 

Why Canada is a great choice as the official partner country of bauma?

A market that matters

  • Canada is the world’s 10th largest economy, and the 8th largest construction equipment market.
  • The construction and mining sectors make up 15 per cent of GDP.
  • Canada is among the top five producers of almost all major commodities and minerals.
  • The construction sector is anticipating growth of beyond 3 per cent p.a. in the coming years.

The perfect fit

  • All categories of the bauma scope – construction machinery, mineral processing equipment, building material machinery, mining equipment – play a vital role for the development of the Canadian industry.
  • A recovering mining sector and huge upcoming projects will foster demand in Canada,
    and bauma will be the place to see everything that is needed to get the job done.

The tailwind of CETA

  • Europe-Canada trade in construction and mining equipment amounts to $900 million.
  • The CETA agreement will further boost business between the two close trade partners.
