Canada aims to boost trade with Colombia

Thursday, May 2, 2013

Canada and Colombia provide small but stable markets for each other's products, and prospects are good for strengthening these commercial ties under a free-trade agreement that came into force in 2011, says Colombian trade commissioner Alvaro Concha.

Concha is in Vancouver this week in connection with the planned opening of his country's new trade office, manned by trade specialist Juan Carlos Oliveros, to serve British Columbia and Alberta.

Trade volume increased by 16 per cent in Colombian goods going into Canada, and almost as much growth in what Canada sent back in 2011, the first year of the deal.
