Mr. Speaker, when we look at agri-food exports it is certainly a good news story, the kind of story Canadians want to hear about.
Statistics Canada figures show that we are already exporting $18.8 billion worth of agri-food and agricultural products. We must recognize however that this could not have been achieved without the efforts by this government, and the minister in particular, in leading trade missions abroad to promote Canadian agricultural and agri-food products.
We are on the right track. We will certainly meet and quite possible exceed our $20 billion target.
If you will bear with me for a moment, since this is probably my last chance to do so in this Parliament, I want to thank you all for your co-operation and especially for your friendship.
