Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has made improving relations with China a key priority for his government. Canada has joined the Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank, committed to an annual leader-level dialogue and launched exploratory discussions for a possible bilateral free trade agreement. Should Canada launch free trade negotiations with China? What are the implications of a closer relationship with China as Canada renegotiates NAFTA? How will a more protectionist US administration respond to these efforts?

Join the Ottawa Economics Association for a panel discussion on the future of Canada’s relationship with China featuring two of Canada’s leading trade policy experts.
