Leveraging trade for better development
The development of the Third World remains a formidable challenge and a serious threat to all industrialized countries. Canada is no exception and will be reminded forcefully on the occasion of next year’s G8 and G20 summits.
Substantial amounts of money will be demanded—but better development means should be the answer. The relatively small size of our internal market forced Canadian entrepreneurs, big and small, to turn their attention to export markets. Their successes abroad have had a direct impact on the economic development of Canada and its standard of living. Why not help others move out of poverty by sharing with them the lesson we have learned?
