Prime Minister of Canada announces closer collaboration with the United Kingdom



OTTAWA, Sept. 18, 2017 /CNW/ - The Prime Minister, Justin Trudeau, met today with Prime Minister Theresa May of the United Kingdom (UK).

The two leaders took the opportunity to set the foundation for an even stronger Canada-UK relationship, especially in the areas of trade and innovation, defence and security, domestic policy coordination, and promotion of common values such as gender equality.

They reiterated the importance of ensuring the early ratification of the Canada-European Union Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement (CETA) while the UK is still a member of the EU. They also emphasized their desire for a seamless transition on trade as the UK exits the EU.

Quote

"From mutual values to a shared sovereign, few countries have as much in common as Canada and the UK. Prime Minister May and I met today to deepen our historic partnership on a number of issues, and to ensure the continued prosperity of people and businesses on both sides of the Atlantic."

? The Rt. Hon. Justin Trudeau, Prime Minister of Canada
