Conclusion of successful third CPTPP Commission meeting
“The CPTPP benefits Canadian businesses and exporters, and will be key to driving our economic recovery from COVID-19 as an ambitious, high-standard blueprint for prosperity in the Asia-Pacific. I welcomed the chance to connect with my counterparts to talk about how we can work together to ensure that the agreement continues to benefit our people, and to welcome new CPTPP members. Canada will continue to demonstrate leadership on the world stage to push for open, rules-based trade, and to increase prosperity for all Canadians.”
- Mary Ng, Minister of Small Business, Export Promotion and International Trade
