The Federal Budget released by the Minister of Finance Jim Flaherty on Thursday afternoon outlined the Federal government’s continued commitment to innovation, competitiveness, market development and regulatory cooperation with the United States. These are priorities for our industry and the Canadian Pork Council.
“The Canadian swine industry is very supportive of expanding trade and cooperation activities that would help to improve the trading climate and competiveness of Canadian pork,” stated CPC’s Chair Jean-Guy Vincent. “We are very supportive of the Canadian governments’ trade agenda and look forward to the successful completion of the trade agreements with the European Union, Japan, South Korea and Trans Pacific Partnership.”
