Province Being Noticed for Ocean Technology - Jun 14, 2006Someone, please, tell Chairman Dan that the Sally Field act, just like the Irish Leprechaun — begyourpardon, Celtic Tiger, comparison — is getting a little old. And someone else, please, tell the VOCM newsroom that the Danny Field act is not especially news-worthy.
Premier Danny Williams says Newfoundland and Labrador is opening a lot of eyes when it comes to this province's ocean technology. Williams says both the United States and Ireland are showing significant interest in the opportunities this province’s ocean technology present. He says this resource is opening a lot of doors in the ocean industries field, and stakeholders in the business community and academic community are really involved. Williams points out the technical capability in Newfoundland and Labrador for ocean technology is relatively unknown, and people from the states of Massachusetts and Rhode Island are recognizing that we have a lot to offer. The Premier says some of the most informed people in the world on this subject are in Rhode Island, and they are looking at the potential this province has to offer, which would enhance their position as well. Williams says governors along the eastern seaboard of the United States are also recognizing Newfoundland and Labrador has a lot to offer when it comes to our people, culture, music, energy, and tourism, along with ocean technology.
