Mr. Speaker, today I announced that we are placing 25 of Canada's best trade commissioners on the front lines to help increase exports by small and medium-sized businesses.
We are embedding our trade commissioners within a variety of industry associations. This will help us better understand the specific export needs of those sectors of our economy.
However, we are not stopping there. Next week I will lead my fifth trade mission to China and in June another trade mission to Africa.
These are just some of the examples of how our Conservative government is promoting Canada's economic interests all around the world.
