OP-ED from MP Parm Gill

Promoting Canada as a Strong Trading Partner around the World Under the guidance of our Conservative Government, Canada is positioned to be a strong and credible voice on key issues in our global community. In a time of global economic uncertainty, we have prioritized Canada’s economic recovery resulting in significant measures of economic success. With the creation of over 1.2 million net new jobs since 2007, our Government’s investment in jobs, growth, and long-term prosperity has enhanced the resilience of the Canadian economy. This success includes our focus on pursuing the most ambitious trade agenda in Canadian history, helping ensure our long-term economic prosperity. For example, our Government has formalized the text for the landmark trade agreement with the European Union, and we introduced the Canada-Korea Free Trade Agreement to name a few. In addition to increased jobs and economic activity, expanding Canada’s free trade agreements also provides hard-working families lower costs for everyday household goods. As our Government continues to guide Canada’s strong economic growth, the Honourable Ed Fast, Minister of International Trade, is leading a trade mission at the World Economic Forum to promote the Canada-European Union Comprehensive Trade Agreement (CETA). These cross-country consultations include critical small and medium sized enterprises, and with these consultations, the Government of Canada will continue open markets that hold the greatest promise for Canadians and Canadian businesses. Canada’s small and medium sized businesses represent the back-bone of our economy, so when Canadian businesses succeed, all Canadians benefit from the jobs and opportunities that are created. Going forward, we will continue to work closely with industry stakeholders to ensure our plan reflects global trends and aligns our Government’s priorities with the needs of Canadians. By working together, we will build on our past successes to ensure a prosperous Canada that remains a champion of trade.
