"There are tremendous opportunities for international researchers and businesses to come to Canada and invest in research and development," said Minister of State Goodyear. "This conference allows us to showcase opportunities in nanotechnology and promote stronger linkages with Canadian researchers and innovators. The relationship we are building will benefit the Canadian and Japanese economies."

The conference drew a number of high-profile delegates, including His Excellency Kaoru Ishikawa, Ambassador of Japan to Canada and Mr. Yasuyoshi Kakita, Director of the Generic Research and Research Platform Division of Japan's Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology.

In his address to the conference delegates, Minister of State Goodyear highlighted 25 years of Canadian and Japanese cooperation in science and technology. He encouraged further research collaboration, noting that technological development, research and innovation are going to be critical to the continued economic growth and advancement of both countries.
