Ottawa- Mark Strahl, MP for Chilliwack-Fraser Canyon spoke in favour of the new business opportunities and jobs available to Canadians through participation in the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP).

"Mr. Speaker, our government understands that opening new markets and creating new business opportunities leads to jobs, growth and long-term prosperity for all Canadians. That is why we are committed to deepening Canada's trading relationships with the dynamic and fast-growing economies of the Asia-Pacific," said Strahl in the House of Commons.

The TPP is a free trade agreement currently under negotiation by nine countries: Australia, Brunei Darussalam, Chile, Malaysia, New Zealand, Peru, Singapore, the United States and Vietnam.

The current membership represents a market of 510 million people and a GDP of $17.6 trillion. With the addition of Canada and Mexico, the market will comprise 658 million people and a GDP of $20.5 trillion. Canada will proceed to enter the talks at the earliest opportunity.

The Canadian Federation of Agriculture applauded the news Canada would be joining the trade negotiations, saying, "The TPP represents significant market opportunities for Canadian farmers and a strong boost to the Canadian economy".
