TORONTO, Oct. 8, 2015 /CNW/ - "Canadian consumers and business will benefit from this agreement that serves to further strengthen the Canadian economy by improving access to a market of more than 800 million consumers. CCLA has from the outset supported the government in pursuing the TPP negotiations. We look forward to continued cooperation leading to implementation of the agreement" said CCLA President & CEO David Turnbull.
CCLA is the industry association that represents the express delivery industry.
TPP will provide Canadian businesses preferred access to 40 per cent of the world's economy. This free trade agreement will provide many small and medium sized enterprises expanded export opportunities. Consumers will benefit from reduction or elimination of tariffs in the 12 nation zone.
Significantly, as one of the founding members of TPP, Canada will have a deciding voice as additional countries seek membership in the trade agreement. Combined, the TPP and trade agreements with the European Union and South Korea make Canada the only G-7 nation with free trade access to the United States and the Americas, Europe and the Asia-Pacific region. CCLA congratulates our trade negotiators for their efforts in these achievements.
