“Increasing Canada’s Trade with Asia”

Over the past decade, China has become Canada’s second largest and fastest growing trading partner, with exports quadrupling from $5 billion to $20 billion and imports nearly tripling from $18.6 billion to $52 billion. he countries complement one another, with Canada exporting so many of the natural resources that a rapidly industrializing China needs while wealthy Canada imports many consumer goods. The potential for future growth is enormous as China continues to become the world’s largest economy. In fact, 2013 saw China surpassing the United States to become the world’s biggest trading nation, with imports and exports totaling $4 trillion.
