Maxime Bernier, Minister of State (Small Business and Tourism) (Agriculture), today delivered a keynote address to the Brandon Chamber of Commerce. The Minister of State explained how the Government of Canada is creating the best business environment possible for Canadian entrepreneurs by cutting unnecessary government red tape and delivering substantial ongoing tax relief. He highlighted Economic Action Plan 2014 measures that are helping entrepreneurs create jobs and spur economic growth.
The Minister of State also mentioned that the federal government is continuing to boost international commercial ties, referring to the historic free trade agreement with the Republic of Korea that was recently announced by the Prime Minister.
