Mr. Speaker, it is my pleasure today to rise in the House to announce formally that Canada and South Korea have concluded negotiations for a free trade agreement. This is a landmark agreement. In fact, it is Canada’s first free trade agreement in the Asia-Pacific region.
South Korea is a key partner. It is our seventh largest trading relationship. More than 26,000 of our veterans helped secure that democracy.
Today I am tabling, in both official languages, the final agreement summary of the Canada-Korea free trade agreement.
