  2. Concepts, Competencies and Connections “In coming years, the knowledge industries will be one of the fastest growing elements of international trade. There will be a huge demand in the future for education ….. ranging from recruitment of students to the sales of training and expertise, cutting edge technology and mediated learning.”“There cannot be many export products or investment opportunities that offer such deep and lasting returns. Foreign students who return to their own countries become business partners, sales people for Canadian education, and advocates for Canada. Those who stay here enrich our country and advance its prosperity.” Remarks by The Honourable Bill Graham, Minister of Foreign Affairs to the Canadian Education Centres Network, December, 2002
