2013 A Banner Year for International Trade

Tuesday, January 14, 2014 > 13:37:46

(Daily Commercial News)

The Canadian government is calling 2013 the most productive year for international trade and investment in the countrys history.

Thanks to our governments pro-export actions and pro-trade leadership, Canadian workers, businesses, exporters and investors are continuing to gain preferred access, a real competitive edge and greater protection in more markets around the world, said Minister of International Trade Ed Fast, in a statement.

The Canada-European Union trade agreement announced in October 2013 will triple the number of countries with which Canada has free trade agreements from 14 to 42, providing Canada free-trade access to more than half of the entire global marketplace.

Other 2013 gains include bringing into force or signing free trade agreements with Panama, Chile and Honduras and concluding or bringing into force a record 10 foreign investment promotion and protection agreements.

The government also unveiled Canadas new Global Markets Action Plan, a comprehensive pro-trade and pro-investment plan that reflects the changing global landscape, focuses on core Canadian strengths and aligns Canadas trade, development and foreign policy tools to advance commercial interests around the world.

Under the plan the government aims to work with Canadas small and medium-sized enterprises to grow their export presence in emerging markets from 29% to 50% by 2018. More than 60% of Canadas annual income and the jobs of one in five Canadians are directly linked to exports.
