PCI Geomatics referenced at Ontario Legislative Assembly

PCI Geomatics and International Competitiveness
Reza Moridi, MPP Richmond Hill
Member’s Statement
Ontario Legislative Assembly

Mr. Speaker,
I rise here today to speak on a successful organization in my riding of Richmond Hill, PCI Geomatics. This company is a world-leading, innovative developer of image-centric software and solutions for geospatial imaging applications.

Last November, this company joined other Ontario based innovative environmental technology companies, in a trade delegation to China led by Premier McGuinty and Minister Chan.

The successful mission resulted in 600 million dollars in contracts. The company signed agreements with the National Geomatics Centre of China and Chinese Centre for Earth Observation and Digital Earth – focusing on environmental monitoring.

Built on the success of last year’s trip, PCI Geomatics has further extended its market reach in China this year, and expanded its market share in Europe.

Mr. Speaker,
Ontario has a lot to offer to the world, with our knowledge-based, green economy, and with our government – business partnership. Going green establishes international opportunities and creates jobs. In these challenging times, we need to be more aggressive than ever on the international stage.

I would also like to congratulate PCI Geomatics, for their continued success in the international market, and for creating world renowned technology. Thank you.
