Synopsis

With support from the Embassy of Japan in Canada and the U.S.-Japan Research Institute in Washington, this workshop will be taking stock of the current Canada-Japan security and trade relationship and is intended to offer analysis and offer recommendations going forward. With the implementation of the Comprehensive and Progressive Trans-Pacific Partnership (December 30, 2018) Canada and Japan effectively enjoy free trade. The challenge now for governments and business will be to take full advantage of the agreement so as to increase both trade and investment flows. Meanwhile, there are real and growing security challenges in the Indo-Pacific, including the North Pacific.
