2016 BC Jade Day Celebration co-organized by the government of British Columbia and Canadian National Jade Research Institute was a success and greatly supported by the community. The two day event took place at the Vancouver International Village from May 28 – 29. Member of BC Legislative, Richard T. Lee was the event Ambassador and speaker at the celebration. Other Government representatives included Hon. Linda Reid (Speaker of the Legislative Assembly of BC) and Hon. Teresa Wat (Minister of Trade and responsible for the Asia Pacific Strategy and Multiculturalism) also attended the event and made speeches to the guests. We were very honored to take part and sponsor this annual gathering for the BC Jade industry.
