November 12, 2018 - " A full-scale trade deal between Canada and China is possible even as Canada remains open to striking smaller sector-by-sector agreements, says International Trade Minister Jim Carr. Speaking in Beijing Monday after bilateral economic meetings, Carr said China is interested in a wide range of Canadian products across many different sectors. But while Canada is in talks with China on a number of fronts, he insisted those efforts don't preclude a wide-ranging trade agreement between the two countries." - Canada still hopes to secure comprehensive free-trade deal with China - CBC

February 21, 2018 - "Talks on CEPA, the trade agreement, began at the end of 2010, after Prime Minister Stephen Harper visited India and a joint study forecast a deal would produce a GDP gain of US$6–15 billion for Canada. The following year’s throne speech declared the government’s intention to complete negotiations on the deal in 2013. That did not happen. There have been 10 rounds of discussion in total. The latest, in August 2017, came after a more than two-year gap. Political events, differing negotiating styles and technical approaches to trade, and the passage of time have all conspired to prevent the deals being finalized." - Canada and India can’t seem to make a trade deal.

2018 - "Canada’s goods exports to China rose 11.5 percent in 2017, a rate almost triple that of 2016. Meanwhile, Canada’s goods imports from China grew even faster, up 13.3 percent, to reach $42.6 billion. China remains Canada’s second-largest trade partner. (p.39) [...] China is and will remain Canada’s most important trading partner in emerging Asia, accounting for over twothirds of Canada’s exports and over three-quarters of Canada’s imports. Of key importance in Canada’s trade with the region are the imports of electrical and electronic machinery conducted through the key international export platforms (e.g. China, Malaysia and, increasingly, Vietnam). Canada’s trade with this region’s countries that are not part of that platform, such as India and Indonesia, is nearly balanced, demonstrating that trade deficit is not necessarily a feature of Canada’s commercial activities in the region. Emerging Asia now accounts for 16.6 percent of Canada’s imports and 6.2 percent of Canada’s exports, both up considerably from the previous year.
