OWIT encourages Canada, Mexico, and the United States to affirm their commitment to the advancement of women in trade. This is consistent with NAFTA parties’ international agenda and in line with the UN sustainable development goals. This is further in line with the World Trade Organization's next public forum, which will seek to establish consensus on a gendered approach to trade agreements and trade policy.
On behalf of OWIT members, I wish to thank the honourable committee for its efforts to advance international trade opportunities for Canadians. We're grateful to be included in your consultations and hope to see you here again in the future.
