Canada pushes ahead with trade accords for both Costa Rica and Panama

Thursday, September 2, 2010

Canada and Costa Rica have agreed to work toward modernizing the existing bilateral free-trade agreement, announced Peter Van Loan, Canada’s minister of international trade, who just concluded his five-day, four-country visit to Latin America.

The Canadian government also intends to table a bill to implement the Canada-Panama Free-Trade Agreement in the next session.

“Expanding market access in areas such as cross-border trade in services, financial services and government procurement will create even more economic opportunities and jobs for Canadian businesses and communities,” Van Loan said.
