Canada opens trade talks with Indonesia

Canada has begun to negotiate a trade deal with Indonesia and is inviting public input.

International Trade Minister Mary Ng said “Canada is committed to diversifying trade across the Asia-Pacific region to create new trade and investment opportunities for all Canadians."

She said a comprehensive economic partnership agreement would benefit importers and exporters by improving market access to the world’s fourth most populous country.

Public consultations on the merits of a deal between Canada and Indonesia are underway until Feb. 23. Those interested can share their views by visiting Global Affairs Canada’s website.
