(OTTAWA) – June 27, 2019 – The Canadian Chamber of Commerce is taking a delegation of Canadian businesses to next week’s B7 Summit, the business advisory group that informs the G7.

As Canada’s sole and official representative to the B7, the Canadian Chamber of Commerce is the business community’s primary voice at the world’s top business forum. In this capacity, the Canadian Chamber will contribute to the recommendations advanced by the B7 to the G7 leaders before their meeting in France. 

At this year’s B7 Summit in Aix-en-Provence, the Chamber will advocate several key priorities for Canadian businesses, focusing on areas like international trade and cybersecurity. The delegation will also meet with President Macron and the French Minister of Finance, and with experts from organizations like the OECD to discuss economic and trade issues.

“Canadian companies have a strong interest in shaping international policies that impact their businesses. By being at the B7, our members have the unique opportunity to get ahead of the international policy curve. It’s one of the unique advantages of being a member of the Canadian Chamber,” said the Hon. Perrin Beatty, P.C., O.C., President and CEO of the Canadian Chamber of Commerce.

The Canadian Chamber will lead a delegation of Canadian businesses from different sectors of our economy, including financial services and agri-food.

“Agropur is proud to be part of this event. We will promote the need for fair trade that reflects each country’s economic realities and diversified business models and promotes sustainable economic development,” said Robert Coallier, Chief Executive Officer of Agropur cooperative.
