NAFTA must be Trudeau's focus at Davos -- scholar — Interview

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau met with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland on Wednesday, but the Canadian media travelling with the PM did not receive a customary notification in advance.

The deal comes amid worries that Trump will pull the USA out of the North American Free Trade deal. I want the winds of cultures of all countries to enter my house with aplomb and go out also.”.

Canada, which is the second-largest economy in the CPTPP, had walked away from a deal on the trade pact last November, holding out to maintain environmental and labor protections linked to freer markets.

His address also strongly chastised the world's corporations and governments for becoming disconnected from the common person.

Canada had earlier agreed at talks in Tokyo to join 10 other countries in resurrecting the Trans-Pacific Partnership, now the Comprehensive and Progressive Agreement for Trans-Pacific Partnership.

Trudeau's efforts to attract investment in Canada come amid an uncertain future for the North American Free Trade Agreement and the country's special access to the US market.

While companies globally are concerned about the impact of technology and artificial intelligence on their businesses, Mr Trudeau said: "If you're anxious, imagine how the folks who aren't in this room are feeling".

While Canada is an established member of the Group of Seven major industrial economies, India remains an economy still marked by extreme levels of wealth and poverty.

"And not just because it's the right thing to do, or the the nice thing to do, but because it's the smart thing to do". The changes, he said, will "pay back to India in a big way".

In a tweet, Modi said he was delighted to meet Trudeau.
