Minister Fast attends the Ministerial Meeting of the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) forum in Vladivostok, Russia, September 8 and 9, with Foreign Affairs Minister John Baird and representatives of 20 other member economies of the Asia-Pacific community.

Discussions will focus on:

  • expanding trade and investment liberalization and improving regional economic integration;
  • strengthening food security;
  • establishing reliable supply chains; and
  • fostering innovative growth by continuing to identify practices to promote effective, non-discriminatory and market-driven innovation policy.

Canada will use this opportunity to highlight Canada’s pro-trade plan and deepen trade relations with key markets in the Asia-Pacific region.
