Trade Minister To Visit US To Foster Bilateral Ties
Mary Ng, Minister of International Trade, Export Promotion, Small Business, and Economic Development will visit Washington, D.C. today to reinforce the importance of Canada’s strong partnership with the United States.
This follow-up visit will focus on common goals geared toward the economic recovery.
She will take part in a panel discussion at the Wilson Center’s Canada Institute on North American efforts to foster inclusive trade around the world.
Ng is also scheduled to take part in a virtual event about the U.S.-Mexico-Canada Agreement hosted by the Brookings Institution.
It’s the minister’s third visit to D.C. in just over three months, the first coming in November as part of a trilateral summit of North American leaders at the White House.
Canada has been seized with a number of trade irritants since President Joe Biden took over last year, including on dairy, solar panel, and potato exports, and fears the impact of proposed U.S. tax incentives on electric vehicles.
