March 20, 2023

Canadian Chamber of Commerce Icon

At their February 2021 meeting, Prime Minister Trudeau and President Biden agreed on a “Roadmap for a Renewed Canada-U.S. Partnership,” which proposed a range of joint actions on trade, climate change, and global and regional security issues. As President Biden makes his first trip to Ottawa, has any progress been made in strengthening bilateral cooperation? Given shifting geopolitical contexts, renewed protectionist rhetoric in the U.S. and a turn to industrial policy, this Executive Summit will revisit the commitments made and consider what more can be done to bolster economic ties between our two countries.
