Prime Minister Stephen Harper makes visit to Chilliwack's IMW plant
Prime Minister Stephen Harper was in Chilliwack today, joining community and senior business leaders from Canadian companies for a roundtable to discuss how the Canada-Korea Free Trade Agreement will significantly boost trade and investment ties between our two countries, creating jobs and opportunities. The session was hosted by Ed Fast, Minister of International Trade, and held at Chilliwack's IMW plant.
Korea is a priority market for the government of Canada. The two countries announced the conclusion of negotiations for the Free Trade Agreement in March 2014 and are working expeditiously through the remaining steps so that the Agreement can enter into force as soon as possible.
Once implemented, the agreement will immediately bring substantial benefits to Canadian consumers, exporters, producers and investors across all regions of the country.
