CME applauds the signing of the TPP in New Zealand

Published by Brad Fougere on February 03, 2016

The Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) was signed by all 12 nations today in New Zealand. Canadian Manufacturers & Exporters (CME) has been an advocate for Canada's participation in the TPP negotiations since the very beginning and looks forward to working with the government on its implementation.

"Canadian Manufacturers & Exporters applauds the signing of the Trans-Pacific Partnership agreement and encourages the Canadian government to pursue ratification," said CME president and CEO Jayson Myers. "TPP will give better access to a market of more than 800 million consumers to Canada's small and medium sized companies, will benefit Canada's manufacturing and exporting companies and the Canadian economy as a whole."

CME has a stated goal of doubling manufacturing and exporting output in Canada by 2030. With preferred access to 40 per cent of the world’s economy by being a part of TPP, our goals become more attainable and Canada’s economy steadies in uncertain economic times.

"We have a lot to win through this deal and as Canada's largest trade association, CME looks forward to working with manufacturers and exporters across Canada to make sure that they can take full advantage of the opportunities of a Trans-Pacific Partnership and to make sure that they're able to compete in both domestic and international markets."
