Trudeau And Trump Recognize “Unique” Partnership

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and U.S. President Donald Trump have issued a joint statement on shared priorities that suggests the first face-to-face meetings between the two leaders have gone well.

The lengthy statement indicates the two sides have agreed to work on improving labour mobility and trade across the Canada-U.S. border, expand preclearance agreements to cover cargo shipments and work on infrastructure projects in both countries.

It reflects a grasp of a “unique” partnership and a commitment to continue to strengthen ties for the mutual benefit of the two countries.

It acknowledges that Canada is a vital foreign market for some 35 U.S. states, with more than $2 billion flowing across the border each day.

The statement also acknowledges a shared goal of “moving forward on energy infrastructure projects that will create jobs while respecting the environment.”

It also says the two sides plan to build on a number of areas of environmental co-operation, particularly along the border and the Great Lakes.
