Analysis: Why Canada’s Parliament should ratify trade pact with Panama

Friday, March 11, 2011


It’s been a year and a half since Canada and Panama signed a free-trade agreement that creates important opportunities for Canadian producers. Canada’s Parliament should ratify it.

Panama may have a small economy, but it thinks big. During the past three years, a bad time for most of the world’s economies, Panamanian output grew, on average, by a robust 5 per cent a year. In the previous five-year period, Panama had the fastest growth of any Latin American country, writes Fred Blaser.
