Trevor Kennedy emphasizes the importance for Canada’s much-anticipated Indo-Pacific strategy to focus on trade and economic ties. His remarks to the Standing Committee on International Trade’s Study on Trade Opportunities for Canadian Business in the Indo-Pacific were quoted by the Hill Times in a story about industry perspectives on Canada’s engagement with this region.  

“One way Canada can advance its regional interests is to release an Indo-Pacific strategy, and this should include a significant focus on trade and economic ties.”
