Mr. Speaker, our government remains focused on jobs and economic growth. Our efforts toward improving international ties are no exception.
The Prime Minister's visit to China this week is just one example of Canada's successful efforts to improve and diversify trade linkages around the world.
Be it in forestry, tourism, education, energy or agriculture, our joint initiatives are rapidly increasing commercial, cultural and scholastic ties between our two countries. Canadian families, business and communities will see the economic benefits of these agreements. Our economic relations with China will benefit Canadian communities, large and small.
As China continues to grow in significance as one of our trading partners, I am sure we will see more and more benefits from our government's efforts to strengthen economic ties in Asia.
