Prime Minister to travel to the Netherlands, Italy, and the United Kingdom


OTTAWA, ON, Oct. 25, 2021 /CNW/ - The Prime Minister, Justin Trudeau, today announced he will travel to Europe for a bilateral visit to the Netherlands before participating in the Group of Twenty (G20) Leaders' Summit in Italy and the United Nations Climate Change Conference (COP26) in the United Kingdom.

The Prime Minister will travel to The Hague, the Netherlands on October 29, 2021 where he will meet with Prime Minister Mark Rutte and other Dutch representatives to discuss both countries' shared priorities and further the strong ties between Canada and the Netherlands.

The Prime Minister will then travel to Rome, Italy from October 30 to 31, 2021 to attend the G20 Leaders' Summit. The Prime Minister will highlight Canada's contributions to the global COVID-19 pandemic response and economic recovery, including support for low- and middle-income countries. He will also highlight Canada's ambitious actions to cut pollution while creating new middle class jobs and accelerating the transition to clean energy.

Following the G20 Leaders' Summit, Prime Minister Trudeau will travel to Glasgow, United Kingdom from November 1 to 2, 2021 to participate in COP26. At COP26, the Prime Minister will work with other leaders to accelerate global climate action to reduce pollution and meet targets outlined in the Paris Agreement, while creating economic growth for everyone.  At the Conference, he will also highlight Canada's leadership in the fight against climate change. This includes setting a strengthened 2030 emissions reduction target, putting a price on pollution, passing legislation to require net-zero emissions by 2050, and doubling Canada's financial contribution to support climate action in developing countries.

The G20 Leaders' Summit and COP26 are critical opportunities for Canada to work together with its global partners to find real solutions to the world's greatest challenges. Together, we will finish the fight against COVID-19, tackle the global climate crisis, and build a better future for everyone.
