Canada requests to join EU consultations at WTO

Statement

February 10, 2022 - Ottawa, Ontario - Global Affairs Canada

Global Affairs Canada today issued the following statement:

“Canada opposes economic coercion and stands with like-minded partners in supporting rules-based international trade with the World Trade Organization at its core.

“In this context, Canada is concerned by China’s recent trade actions taken against Lithuania and European Union goods and services with Lithuanian content, which could undermine the rules-based international trading system and its institutions. Canada has requested to join consultations as part of the EU’s dispute with China at the WTO, in our interest in promoting and defending the multilateral trading system.”
