“Through trade we can create new opportunities for people to build real, lasting success for themselves and for their families,” he said in a speech to members of the Greater Vancouver Board of Trade. “Canada is in a very good position to make that happen.”
Trudeau referenced the government’s recently reached agreements on NAFTA, now known as the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement, the Trans-Pacific Partnership, which goes into effect at the end of the year and links Canada to 10 other nations, including Australia, Japan and New Zealand, and the Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement with the European Union, which was signed in .
“We now have preferred market access to two-thirds of the global economy,” Trudeau said. “We’re the only G7 country with preferential access to European, Asia Pacific and North American markets. Simply put, we’re the only G7 country with a free-trade deal with every other G7 country.”
Trudeau referenced a visit to the Board of Trade back in 2014 after he was first elected Liberal Party leader.
“I remember saying that trade is our way forward… four years later I’m more convinced than ever that expanding access to new markets with modern, progressive trade agreements is the ticket to our success.”
