Belgian Prime Minister Charles Michel Visit to Canada
Bilateral Meeting with Prime Minister Justin Trudeau
On June 16, Prime Minister Michel will also meet the Prime Minister of Canada, Justin Trudeau. During their meeting, Prime Minister Trudeau and Prime Minister Michel will discuss issues of mutual interest, including how to leverage opportunities created by the recently approved Canada-European Union Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement (CETA).
The Prime Ministers will also discuss how to best harness innovation in science and technology. Canadian and Belgian research institutions and companies currently collaborate on innovation, science and technology in different fields: from life sciences to microelectronics, environmental and imaging technologies.
"Canada and Belgium are close friends with a strong partnership in trade, investment and innovation. I look forward to meeting with Prime Minister Michel to discuss how CETA will expand trade opportunities between our two countries and create good, well-paying middle-class jobs on both sides of the Atlantic," said Mr. Trudeau.
Canada and Belgium enjoy an excellent bilateral relationship across the political, commercial and cultural sectors. Only in 2016, bilateral merchandise trade between Canada and Belgium totalled more than $5.4 billion.
