Mr. Speaker, today, our government introduced new legislation to implement the Canada-Jordan Free Trade Agreement.
When this agreement goes into effect, tariffs on 99% of Canadian exports to Jordan will be eliminated and exporters of forest, agriculture and agri-food products will have immediate access to Jordan's markets.
Our Conservative government is working hard to open new markets for our companies. For example, we have entered into free trade agreements with Iceland, Norway, Switzerland, Liechtenstein, Colombia, Peru, Jordan and Panama.
This agreement with Jordan is another example of our government's efforts to provide new trade opportunities for our businesses.
