Consultations on the Development of the Canada-Japan Joint Study

Closing date: May 31, 2006

The Government of Canada is seeking the views of Canadian stakeholders on a joint study it is undertaking with the Government of Japan designed to examine the implications of further promotion and liberalization of bilateral trade and investment. The joint study is a key component of the Canada-Japan Economic Framework that was signed by the two governments on November 19, 2005, as a means of reinforcing the bilateral economic relationship.

The findings of the joint study will be used to enhance Canada’s commercial relations with Japan, including through the potential use of various policy tools. Comments are invited on existing barriers to trade and investment, possible policy tools to address those issues, and advice on how best to promote the bilateral commercial relationship.

For information on the Canada-Japan Economic Framework, and on the procedures for submissions by interested parties, we invite you to consult the additional background information.

All interested parties are invited to submit their views on issues which will impact the development of the Joint Study by May 31, 2006.
