CANADA: SWP's Q2 delivers solid performance on priorities
Regina, Saskatchewan-based agribusiness cooperative Saskatchewan Wheat Pool (SWP) reported positive performance during its Q2 in terms of meeting its priorities of strengthening its balance sheet and maximising core operations. SWP's focus on debt reduction has resulted in a C$157m (US$98.4m) decline in debt at 31 January 2002 compared to 31 January 2001.
