I appreciate the question because it drives at the heart of an anxiety that many nations around the world are feeling at this moment in the rules-based trading order, which is that the World Trade Organization needs to be reformed, and it needs to be reformed soon, because the Americans have not appointed appellate court judges and the whole dispute settlement mechanism of the WTO is at risk.
Canada has led an international initiative to reform the WTO that includes the EU and nations from every continent. It's not easy. I like to say that if you invite 164 of your neighbours to your backyard on a July night, give them a barbecue and have a conversation about where the cell tower should go, are you going to get consensus among the 164? Probably not, regardless of how good your burgers are.
To reform the WTO, you need consensus among 164 nations, so where do you start? You start with those who agree with us that liberalized trade and a rules-based trading order are in the interests of the world, as they have been since the Second World War. We are very aggressive in bringing together that group. It happened first in Ottawa. We had a second meeting in Europe in January. We meet again in Paris in May, and we meet again in Japan in June.
We believe that there is momentum growing for the reform of these rules that are so important. We're not naive. We know that if it's going to work, ultimately the Chinese and the Americans are going to have to support it.
