is 16 pages.

"This publication demonstrates activity levels and Nova Scotia is
clearly on the move," said Economic Renewal Minister Richie Mann.
"We're letting everyone know that Nova Scotia is a great place to
do business. The report not only informs people of industry
growth in jobs, infrastructure and product, it encourages
businesses to locate, grow and stay in Nova Scotia."

Produced by the Communications Section of the Economic Renewal
Agency, this quarter's news includes items on the expansions of
companies such as Stora Forest Industries, Point Tupper; Efamol
Research Inc., Kentville; Shur-Gain, Truro; National Sea
Products, Lunenburg; and Pratt & Whitney, Halifax Aerotech Park;
and OSP Consultants Inc., Halifax. A newcomer to Nova Scotia,
Cisco Systems Inc. of California, is also highlighted.

A snapshot of the province's thriving software industry is
punctuated by aerospace software training advances made by
Tescult Eduplus Inc. and IOSAT Incorporated, both of Halifax and
both contracted, separately, by the Canadian Space Agency.

All issues include a profile on one of Nova Scotia's new wave of
entrepreneurs, as well as information on new or revised business
programs and publications available to the public.

Those receiving the report include Nova Scotia's business
leaders, boards of trade and commerce, international site
location consultants and financial institutions, media, worldwide
world trade centres, Canadian embassies and consulates, libraries
and interested members of the public. Boosters of Nova Scotia as
a great place to work and do business use the Quarterly Report as
a marketing tool for trade and export and as proof of the
vitality of Nova Scotia's activity in the world marketplace.
