Trudeau calls for ‘progressive trade’ with Japan


Hindustan Surkhiyan Desk:Amidst the on-going trade wars between the United States (US) and other countries, Canadian President Justin Trudeau on Friday said Japan and Canada will focus on progressive trade relations.

Just before the scheduled G7 summit, Trudeau held a meeting with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe as they both discussed The Comprehensive and Progressive Agreement for Trans-Pacific Partnership which aims at creating a counter-trade agreement to the North America Free Trade Alliance largely controlled by the US.

Trudeau took to his Twitter handle to inform the same as he wrote, “Japan & Canada are committed to moving forward on progressive trade to create jobs & growth in both our countries. Thanks to PM @ShinzoAbe for the meeting this morning in Charlevoix, focused on the progress we’ve made on CPTPP and today’s G7 Summit.”

Recently, US President Donald Trump had announced trade tariffs amounting to 25 percent taxation on aluminum and steel products worldwide.

Following that all Canada, Mexico, and the European Union affected by the new trade taxes criticised the US administration for the trade move.

After Trudeau’s statement, the European Union reportedly announced to block the United States move to include the ousted country Russia in the G7 bloc. (ANI)
